RP3011: Community Carbon Reduction and Wellbeing Enhancement

Project leader name: 
Dr. Robert Salter
Project status: 
Project period: 
03/2014 to 09/2015

This two-stage, multi-site living laboratory will research the barriers to and drivers of engaged communities for low carbon living. It will enable project partners – five local councils and two energy organisations – to engage many more residents and clients in significant carbon reduction. It will do this through three trials of Livewell Clusters, constituting a new model of engagement.
