Feasibility studies to improve return on investment in energy efficiency

Following a competition launched last year to foster smart energy innovation, two winners were chosen by UK housing provider Places for People to develop feasibility studies of advanced energy services for improving their return on investment in energy efficiency.

The winners, Lyv and Emrgnt, presented their respective studies to the DREEAM consortium on the 22nd of May. The studies included a proposal for the Padiham site and an estimation of the potential benefits for Places for People at scale. Public summaries of both studies are available below:
