Be part of a Living Labs research project

Energise Sussex Coast is looking for local residents to take part in the ENERGISE Living Lab research project. Participants will join thousands of other citizens across the UK to be supported to cut the amount of energy they use in the home.

As well as saving money on your bill and cutting your carbon emissions, all participants will receive a fortnightly fruit and veg box for the duration of the 8 week Living Lab as a thank you.

Kate Meakin from Energise Sussex Coast says “If you’ve been looking for a way to tackle your high energy bills then this is a great way to get motivated and be part of a community all trying to do the same thing.”

The project will start by collecting data about your current energy use. Households will then work with the researchers at Kingston University, supported by local Energy Co-op Energise Sussex Coast, to try and reduce the amount of energy they use in the home. The researchers aim to discover not just how much energy we use, but why we use the amount we do, and what is the cultural change we need to live more sustainably.
