EDF joins forces with Scottish fintech Snugg

Scottish fintech Snugg is joining forces with EDF, the leading provider of zero-carbon electricity in the UK. Their partnership is geared towards assisting homeowners throughout England and Wales in reducing their carbon footprint and enhancing energy efficiency in their residences by leveraging EDF's extensive network of certified installers.

Starting from April 2023, Snugg users gain exclusive access to EDF's pool of skilled installers, enabling them to install air source heat pumps, solar PV panels, as well as various insulation solutions like loft, cavity wall, and solid wall insulation. This groundbreaking collaboration empowers users not only to design their personalised home efficiency plans using Snugg but also find reputable installers through the platform to bring those plans to fruition.

To request a quote from an EDF-approved installer, Snugg users can follow these simple steps:

  1. Utilise Snugg's platform to create a comprehensive efficiency plan, identifying areas for improvement in their homes.
  2. Provide relevant details about their residence, answering a few concise questions, to receive accurate quotes from EDF-certified installers.
  3. Schedule the installation with their chosen EDF installer and reap the benefits of an energy-efficient home.

By teaming up with EDF, Snugg expands its installer network coverage, streamlining the process of transforming homes into energy-efficient spaces. This collaboration saves customers valuable time and effort, particularly during the pivotal phase of the UK's journey towards achieving Net-Zero.

An insightful analysis conducted by Snugg on Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings in Bristol has revealed that a staggering 59% of homes in the area possess an EPC rating below C, underscoring the critical need for homeowners to take immediate action. By implementing energy efficiency improvements, Snugg estimates that Bristol residents could collectively save an impressive £91 million annually while concurrently reducing the city's yearly carbon emissions by 250,000 tonnes.

Enhancing home energy efficiency stands as a crucial element in the UK's pursuit of Net-Zero targets, and the collaboration between Snugg and EDF serves as a significant stride towards making this aspiration a tangible reality. Together, they are dedicated to making energy-efficient homes accessible, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly for homeowners across the entire UK.

Expressing excitement about the partnership, Snugg CEO Robin Peters stated,

"We are thrilled to join forces with EDF in facilitating easier energy efficiency improvements for our customers' homes. As the awareness of the need for future-proofing homes grows and the UK diligently strives to meet its Net-Zero targets, it becomes paramount that we expedite the transition towards a carbon-neutral world. Our collaboration with EDF represents a significant leap forward in achieving that objective, empowering homeowners to embrace greener and more sustainable living."

Katharine Baker, EDF's Senior Manager of Propositions & Sales, also shared her enthusiasm, saying,

"This marks an exciting new chapter for us as we partner with Snugg to bring energy efficiency measures to our customers. Our extensive installer network offers a diverse range of solutions, from heat pumps to solar panels, enabling customers to take full control of their home's energy efficiency."
