Towards a greener future

We are passionate about

tackling fuel poverty

and ensuring that all our

homes are as energy

efficient and affordable to

live in as possible.

Two years ago we launched one of

the largest domestic energy

monitoring projects in Europe, in

partnership with De Montfort

University. The study looks into the

energy use of more than 150

emh homes households to identify

where efficiencies can be made.

Controlling household energy use

can be complicated, so as part of

the study we have installed smart

heating controls in the homes we

are studying to make it easier for

residents to understand how much

energy they are using.

The results of the study are due in

the next six months, and will show

how much energy and money

households have saved by using

smart technology. This will help

us transform the way all residents

use energy.

Jamal Lea

, Energy Strategy

Officer, said:

“This study shows

how serious we are about

helping residents to save energy

and money.

“Smart technology can help to

cut household energy bills,

tackle fuel poverty, and reduce

our carbon footprint. This will

have beneficial implications for

both residents and the wider

environment.”

The results of the study will be

published on www.emhgreenteam. org.uk later this year.

What tenants say…

“ It’s so easy to use. I diagnosed my repair

and can track what work has already been

completed.”

“ I needed to change my phone number but

don’t have time during the day to ring the

office when I’m at work. I logged on to my

account and updated it from my lounge at

9pm – brilliant!”
