Energy Friends

Householders will be able to access via face to face or social media energy advice and support from volunteer community ‘Energy Friends’ supported and mentored by an experienced project officer from the DCC Housing Solutions Service. General energy efficiency advice will be provided face to face and using smart digital technology.  A DCC Housing Solutions project officer with a home energy efficiency background will offer face to face householder support and will recruit and develop capacity of a local ‘Energy Friends’ network to offer the same advice and support service.

Smart Energy Controllers

Domestic smart energy controllers will be installed in fuel poor homes in the SWI ‘Whole Place’ trial areas to empower householders benefiting from the innovative SWI product to take control and ownership of their energy consumption through a user friendly smart energy controller.
