The National Energy Foundation has launched a programme of 10 ‘Big Ideas’ - projects to help improve the nation’s energy literacy.
The launch follows a nationally representative survey, which revealed how much the British public knows about energy.
As part of the National Energy Foundation’s 25-year anniversary activities, the Working together towards an energy-literate UK programme of 10 ‘Big Ideas’ was launched in a presentation by the Foundation’s chief executive, Dr Kerry Mashford.
National Energy Foundation chief executive Kerry Mashford commented: “Improving the use of energy in buildings is the National Energy Foundation’s overarching objective. Over the past few months, we’ve been giving some serious thought to the big energy issues facing the UK, with a view to achieving significant impact in terms of reducing energy consumption, improving energy security and reducing fuel poverty.
“We’re looking for support and feedback from potential partners to take forward a number of high-impact projects to improve the energy performance of new and existing buildings, and inspire others to do the same.”
