Energy Reduction

 

Building on experience from the Low Carbon Zone en10ergy and Muswell Hill Sustainability Group (MHSG) together have taken forward a number of initiatives to help local residents and businesses continue reducing their carbon emissions.

The measures include:

  • negotiating bulk deals with suppliers of energy saving measures e.g loft insulation, condensing boilers, solar thermal heating
  • making householders aware of local grant schemes to allow them to implement measures as cheaply as possible
  • raising awareness in the wider community e.g. through working with local schools/parents associations and residents associations

 

To expand on the work of the Low Carbon Zone, MHSG conducted a  ‘100 houses Study’ which followed 100 households in Muswell Hill over 2 years.  This assisted participants with an initial carbon footprint assessment, agreed individual carbon reduction plans with them and provided assistance through regular surgeries with experts in household carbon reduction.  There have also been information sessions on zero-cost measures to reduce your carbon footprint, on Solar Renewables, Boilers, Insulation, Food and Waste. Supported by funds from en10ergy, MHSG continues to hold outreach events such as open homes hosted by members who have implemented energy saving improvements to their homes, and discussions of new technologies like smart meters.
