Four sustainability groups based in East Oxford came together to deliver an energy reduction project, aiming to raise awareness and educate local households about energy efficiency in the home. This was done by using thermal imaging equipment to demonstrate where energy was currently being lost from houses, costing them excess money and unnecessarily increasing carbon emissions.
Initially the groups recruited volunteers and held training sessions on using thermal imaging equipment and interpreting results. The volunteers then conducted a door-knocking exercise to recruit members of the local community to take part and have a thermal imaging survey of their house.
A great example of community action groups working together to make a huge difference!ALICECAG (Community Action Group) Oxfordshire
Nominate a community building for a free energy audit
Thanks to a grant from Westmill Solar Co-operative, we are able to offer fully-funded energy audits for community buildings – the first step to reducing the building’s energy use and increasing energy efficiency.
