29.5.19 SHAP ENERGY CAPITAL ERDF EVENT – Development of largescale fuel poverty programmes
This workshop looked at the opportunities for ERDF to support the delivery of low carbon housing innovation in projects to address fuel poverty – technology and operation
- Decarbonisation of the grid
- Training support to the supply chain
- Emerging findings on how lifestyle and new technologies interact
The event was informed by WMCA Energy Capital, hosted by Daikin and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Next steps are to establish working groups and to identify pilots that would be delivered to demonstrate characteristics of new designs for largescale fuel poverty projects. These pilots could be eligible for ERDF grant, dependent on location and timescales.
