Research on energy efficiency in social housing
A report published by Metropolitan Housing Partnership (MHP) on the impact of energy efficiency features in new and retrofitted homes.

The report suggests that there is a worrying gap between designed performance and the actual performance that customers receive. Up to half of residents were unaware of the low and zero carbon technologies (LZCT) in their homes.

BSHF is supporting MHP in a three year study called ‘Homes of Our Times’. This initial report assesses whether residents were achieving intended savings, emitting less carbon and using less energy as a result of their greener homes. Evidence presented in the report demonstrates the pressing need for better and clearer engagement and communication to raise awareness of how the homes and technologies work and what residents need to do in order to benefit from them both in terms of energy and financial savings.
