Neutral Home - current project
Backed by funding from Innovate UK, Neutral Home is excited to be working with Housing Association Vivid Homes. We are helping Vivid to understand how we dramatically reduce energy cost, consumption and emissions. Our project is at a 56 unit apartment block in the South of England, which is home to a wide variety of tenants from families with young children to single occupants.
By monitoring and clearly identifying where energy is being used, we will make recommendations which will cut waste, drive down bills for residents and increase tenant retention for Vivid.
With our monitoring equipment now installed we are crunching the data and building a clear business case for improvements. Cutting energy waste and investing in green on-site power generation and storage are important steps to help Housing Associations reach their Net Zero and ESG commitments, while raising the EPC standards of their housing stock.
Tackling the issues of Net Zero and fuel poverty together, to deliver better homes and a sustainable future.
