The SAVE (Solent Achieving Value through Efficiency) research project is investigating the best way to communicate energy reduction and shifting messages to home owners. The project is an Ofgem project funded by the Low Carbon Network Fund. The purpose of the research is to find the best method to communicate the need for energy reduction and shifting times of energy use to home owners.
There are four SAVE trials taking place across the Solent region from 2016 to 2019. The first three are individual household based and the fourth, ours, community based. There are two community projects taking place – Shirley Warren is one and was chosen from a long list of similar sized communities in the region. The trial focuses on creating a community partnership to achieve a positive local change and also spread the message of energy reduction. The energy research in Shirley Warren will end in December 2017 but we hope that the wider work of Shirley Warren Working Together will continue.
