Save Energy in Stockwell

Individuals making cuts to their own emissions can have a massive collective impact, but many people need support and advice when taking the first step. With funding from Urban II, we provided 200 local residents in Stockwell with free energy surveys of their home and advice on how to reduce their energy consumption.

The project aimed to improve the quality of the environment in the Stockwell and Larkhall area of South London, working with low income households to help them become more energy efficient, reducing fuel bills and thereby increasing disposable income.

We worked with many members of Stockwell's increasingly diverse population to tackle fuel poverty and its associated health problems, especially with residents who had recently arrived in England who felt there was a lack of support for new comers.

Participants received energy saving advice including training in the use of heating controls and the benefits of installing insulation. Small scale energy saving measures were installed for free, such as draught proofing and low energy light bulbs, and work experience was offered to local individuals with the aim of removing barriers to employment through training, advice and confidence building.
