Guides for living with solar panels, heat pumps, MVHR

These guides are for people who have renewable energy systems or low carbon heating already installed - they explain how to check they are working, what maintenance they need, what to do to get the best out of them. I also have a short presentation based on them that I have in November for CCF.

Monitoring equipment for a long term survey of household energy use

DECC have now published the report from some recent work for them, costing different options for a household energy use survey, lasting up to five years and covering thousands of homes. As well as the costing data, there is a discussion of different approaches, advantages and disadvantages, pitfalls and lessons learned from previous work. You can find the report on this page (the one called 'Costing Monitoring Equipment for a Longitudinal Energy Survey - Report')

Research on energy saving and low carbon heating in the countryside.

CPRE have published the research we did on energy saving in rural buildings, especially off the gas grid. The report is 'Warm and Green; Achieving affordable, low carbon energy while reducing the impacts on the countryside. See also my blog post Warm and Green.
