Sustainable multi-storeys research project

multi-story flatsNEA is working in partnership with Newcastle University, Newcastle City Council, Your Homes Newcastle, Northern Powergrid, Northern Gas Networks and AgilityEco on a project which seeks to explore how improvements can be made to the sustainability of multi-storey buildings in Newcastle. NEA researchers have carried out drop-in sessions and focus groups with residents to gather their thoughts on the improvements they would like to see. NEA’s researchers have also facilitated installations of electricity and gas consumption monitors, as well as humidity and air temperature monitors in the properties of 20 residents. This technical data will be used in conjunction with qualitative data to explore the best opportunities for future interventions. Data collection is ongoing and will end in October 2016.
