Who are Arbed am Byth?
Arbed am Byth is a joint venture formed between Energy Saving Trust and Everwarm with the sole purpose of delivering the next phase of the Welsh Government’s Arbed programme in communities across Wales. Arbed am Byth’s role is to manage the programme from end-to-end; beginning with the development of schemes and local relationships, carrying out whole-house assessments, providing tailored packages of recommended energy efficiency measures for each home, procuring and working with local installers to fit any required improvements, inspecting and signing off all measures before undertaking detailed and collaborative evaluations of each scheme.

Arbed am Byth’s mission:
To improve the lives of people in Wales by reducing fuel poverty through improving the energy efficiency of homes in a way which maximises the social, environmental and economic benefits, as well as the longer-term legacy by working towards the goals of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015

Arbed am Byth’s vision:
To deliver a high-quality service to some of the most vulnerable and fuel-poor people throughout Wales, which is innovative, offers value for money, is right first time, meets customer expectations, and makes their staff proud.

Commitment to Welsh Communities
• The Welsh Government wants to see early and meaningful engagement with SMEs and local businesses, in the supply chain
• Their supply chain will create apprenticeships, enhance skills & bring value to Welsh communities
• They will be a local presence and deliver across all of Wales – not focusing on certain areas or house types
• They will work closely with local voluntary and community groups ( in individual schemes)to raise awareness around the work they do and the opportunities it will provide
• They want to leave a lasting legacy and reputation with effective schemes that have demonstrably tackled fuel poverty.


Arbed am Byth is focused on delivering community benefits throughout the lifecycle of the contract and is committed to working with and supporting highly-skilled sub-contractors, taken from communities across Wales, that can provide a genuinely local service.


Contract Objectives
A programme with local community benefits at its core; this is reflected in their approach to delivering Arbed with a key focus on supporting and growing the SME and micro supply chain in Wales and their commitment to providing valuable job opportunities, by locating the contact and operations centre in Nantgarw, which is within an area prioritised for economic development, by the taskforce for South Wales Valleys.
Their approach aims to be fundamentally collaborative with SMEs, local communities, local authorities and third sector organisations throughout Wales. Their operations will be embedded in these communities and measures will be delivered to Welsh householders, by a Welsh supply chain, providing a legacy of affordable warmth across Wales and clear economic, social and environmental impact.
