New training explores how renewable technologies can help those in fuel poverty

NEA, the national fuel poverty charity, has launched a new course 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 course - Decarbonising homes: technologies, impacts and solutions - combines insight from NEA’s own 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.

Who is it for?

The insights and knowledge gained from the training will be relevant to anyone who may be engaging with or supporting low income and vulnerable consumers on low carbon or renewable heat and power, including housing providers, advice agencies and installers.

The complete course consists of eight e-learning modules. Each will typically take two to three hours to complete. The training can also be delivered as a face-to-face session, with the full suite of modules taking between two to three days.
