The project aimed to train 15 PhD researchers to design transformational pathways that tackle Energy Poverty and Justice. It supported in providing evidence and using the decentralised nature of ‘Positive Energy Districts’ and ‘Networks of Districts’ as the central platform of transformation, whilst recognising the economic, social and environmental challenges faced.

SAVES2 - Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings 2European project
SAVES 2 aimed to reach over 219,000 students in eight countries across Europe to inspire them to adopt energy-saving habits at an early stage of their independent lives and to seek out energy efficient properties when moving into the private rented sector, to help minimise their exposure to fuel poverty.
Salford Building In WarmthNational project
This a project working with the local council to test the impact of low-cost measures on bills, comfort and health. It explores six main streams: community engaggement, trainings, low-cost, high-quality installations, energy and quality checks as well as monitoring of various metrics such as temperatur, humidity, biling data and surveys.
Energiesprong: Nottingham City Homes 2050National project
New wall panels are prefabricated off-site and arrived in ‘full story heights’ complete with ample insulation and a durable board finish ready to crane into place. The radical retrofit was completed in less than one week with occupants able to remain in residence throughout the works. Tenants are consulted in the design process and are allowed to choose colours on finishes etc. The tenants also provide a "wish list" which informed the project brief.
Improving Energy Efficiency in Low-Income Households and Communities in RomaniaNational project
The project sought to dismantle the barriers to the implementation of energy efficiency measures among poorer households and communities in Romania, with the overall objective of alleviating energy poverty. The project: (1) addressed energy efficiency needs, (2) developed appropriate policy measures, (3) strengthened the capacity for the implementation of energy-efficiency measures in poorer regions, and (4) stimulated the market for locally-produced, energy-efficient building materials.
MCPE - Mieux comprendre les situations de précarité énergétique pour mieux les traiter/ Better understand energy poverty situations to treat them betterNational project
Les Compagnons Bâtisseurs (CBP) in the regional branch in Provence launched the project MCPE aiming to assist auto-renovations. Staff of CBP helped households with renovation but the project also developed households' awareness campaigns, sociotechnical diagnosis and provided advices.
MAEM - Mon Appartement Eco-Malin/ My eco-smart apartmentNational project
My eco-smart appartment (MAEM) is a demonstration apartment which circulates through the region to demonstrate good at-home practices for everyone to adopt concerning energy savings, recycling, indoor air quality, etc. Everyone can join and see the animations. At the end, small equipment is given out to the public
LEMON - Less Energy More OpportuNitiesNational project
LEMON was a project that provided technical assistance to public and private entities for the preparation of tenders for the energy retrofitting of 622 social housing units in the provinces of Reggio Emilia and Parma. LEMON supplemented regional and national loans and incentives to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings and apply two new contractual instruments to govern the relations between tenants and owners of the residences, the energy supplier and the ESCOs (Energy Service Companies) so as to ensure a return on investment within 15 years from the retrofitting.
LEAF - Low Energy Apartment FuturesEuropean project
Three year project focused to improve the energy efficiency of multi-occupancy apartment blocks by overcoming the barriers experienced during the retrofit process. The toolkits provided advice and information on retrofit and were designed to overcome a number of known barriers.
