A pilot scheme that could help residents get cheap energy by boosting efficiency has been approved by Ofgem to be used as a model for the UK.
SSE has been studying the effect of various insulation measures on carbon emissions and the impact they have on people's bills on behalf of Residential Park Homes.
In some cases, householders in these locations were able to see their expenses halve and Ofgem has now approved the methodology used for wider adoption.
Head of energy efficiency at SSE Stephen Millward said: "We are optimistic and hopeful this will lead to a wider roll out of these measures through grant funded carbon reduction schemes and inclusion in Green Deal and ECO."
This will help tackle both climate change and fuel poverty throughout the country, he continued.
Such measures could be vital for Park Home projects, as their design often means they have low energy efficiency ratings, while conventional insulation solutions are often unsuitable for the abodes.
This week, it was noted by Thinkinsulation.co.uk that fitting lagging to lofts and walls could cut annual energy costs by hundreds of pounds.
