Targeting actions to achieve change relies on good information. It is important to know what households are spending on essential energy needs or on other other energy uses.
It is important to understand what actions are being undertaken by the community to reduce their energy use. How many houses have been insulated and how was it funded? Who has a solar hot water system, a photovoltaic system? Who consciously tries to manage their energy use? Who has double glazing? What if anything do people intend to do in the next five years to their houses or businesses? What might they do if they had resources to pay for changes?
This information, suitably aggregated, would provide businesses and policy makers, and interested community groups with better information about what actions they could take.
This project awaits funding.
