Elmhurst Energy is the UK’s largest independent provider of energy assessment, retrofit and property professional training, software and accreditation. It is an authority on the current use and future changes needed to Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for residential and non-domestic buildings, as well as the fast-growing market for qualified retrofit professionals.
Shortly after the UK went into national lockdown in March 2020, Elmhurst Energy asked LMC to help build its profile within the property and national media.
Elmhurst wanted to bolster its expert status, to support its campaign to improve EPCs for the future, and to reach new customers for registered energy assessors.
Building on Elmhurst’s knowledge and experience, we recommended a thought-leadership campaign that would highlight the value of accurate, up-to-date energy assessments and explain how EPCs could be used as a tool to meet UK policies on tackling fuel poverty, improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
LMC created the Elmhurst Energy Almanac - the authoritative report on energy efficiency policy changes and statistics in the UK.
We have established free educational courses for journalists tasked with writing about energy, fuel poverty and carbon savings, so that they can avoid accidentally spreading misinformation about these technically complex and nuanced issues.
We have also helped Elmhurst Energy articulate its views on key industry concerns and technical issues, including:
2 major features about EPCs on the BBC in 2022
Plus comment and coverage in the i newspaper, Metro, Daily Telegraph and Times, Building magazine and Property Week
2.6 million views of online media coverage in 2022
Plus more than 3,700 shares on social media
