The BIG Energy Upgrade Programme (BEU) is working with DECC and EEDO in preparing for the launch of the Green Deal

The BIG Energy Upgrade Programme has been showcased on DECC’s website as a flagship project for its relevance to the forthcoming Green Deal (http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/news/beu/beu.aspx). This is thanks to the early adoption of the whole-house/whole community approach integrated by work carried out by the Consortium Partners, Yorkshire Energy Services and the University of Sheffield.

The evidence derived from the monitoring and the area-based delivery of retrofit installations will support the activities of the newly established Energy Efficiency Deployment Office (EEDO).

The programme also aims to address fuel poverty in the most deprived communities in the region.

The Management School is playing a major role in the BIG Energy Update Programme  thanks to the work carried out by Professor Lenny Koh as part of the Centre for Energy, Environment and Sustainability ( http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/cees) and the Logistic and Supply Chain Management Centre (LSCM) (http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/lscm).

Professor Lenny Koh is leading an interdisciplinary team as part of the BIG Energy Upgrade project (http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/bigenergyupgrade) funded by the European Union European Regional Development Fund  (ERDF) and is working innovatively to develop new models, technology and systems to help companies reduce their environmental footprint and understand the public’s level of acceptance of these new practices.
