Just a ChangeNational project
Just a Change is a non-profit dedicated to rebuilding homes for those living in Housing Deprivation and Energy Poverty. Renovating a house is an opportunity to rebuild a life. Improving living conditions leads to a reduction in health and safety risks. But it also means improving general living conditions of the population, thus resulting in a decline of poverty and criminality, bringing improvements in public health and energy efficiency. A new house assures a better quality of life, and the impact of the renovated home affects their daily life in terms of health, hope and safety.

Energy Hardship Expert PanelMeasure
The Energy Hardship Expert Panel brings together 5 leaders from a range of backgrounds who collectively hold key insights, connections and experience working directly with households living in or at risk of energy hardship. The objective of the panel is to recommend to government, policy priorities and actions to alleviate energy hardship and provide impartial evidence-based expert advice. The Panel’s work programme will in part, be drawn from the Electricity Price Review’s findings and the government’s response to its recommendations.
Electricity Price ReviewMeasure
The Minister of Energy and Resources commissioned an independent panel of experts to lead the review. Panel members were appointed by the Minister in April 2018. The review was completed in two phases. The first phase focused on determining facts and building evidence of problems in the sector. The second phase focused on developing possible improvements to those problems.
Efidistrict (part of LC Districts project)National project

AirEx AirEx - Smart Ventilation ControlNational project
AirEx has developed the first affordable smart air brick solution for the retrofit housing market.The product is an IoT-enabled smart ventilation control system that replaces conventional airbricks in pre-1950s dwellings. It monitors relevant environmental parameters like temperature and humidity and subsequently opens or closes air-vents to optimise ventilation. Using cloud-based IoT algorithms, AirEx minimises cold airflow whilst ensuring sufficient air exchange to prevent moisture build-up, timber rot or poor indoor air quality.
