ABOUT THE COURSE

The Decarbonising Homes course consists of 8 subject modules aiming to provide a practical understanding of a range of low carbon and renewable technologies, their impacts, and how they can help people living in fuel poverty.

The content combines insight from NEA’s own extensive experiences of trialling the use of innovative technologies in low-income and vulnerable households, with data from other recent prominent studies.

It will discuss the benefits of these technologies and use case studies from NEA’s innovation trials to illustrate examples of resident satisfaction, the advantages of each technology but also potential issues and considerations.
