Case Study

Powering Down East Oxford

The project:

A thermal imaging project to reduce the carbon emissions of households in the East Oxford area by raising awareness of energy efficiency measures, educating households on behaviour changes to reduce their energy use, and encouraging the installation of energy saving measures.

The aim was also for low carbon groups based around East Oxford to work together to deliver the project, to share resources, and learn from each other.

Four groups based around East Oxford joined forces to deliver this energy reduction project to reach as many people as possible. They recruited volunteers, held training sessions on using thermal imaging equipment and interpreting results.

The groups recruited members of the local community by knocking on doors and asking people to take part in a thermal imaging survey to learn about where their houses may be leaking energy, costing them money and increasing their carbon emissions.
