Energy demand reduction, and digital innovation for social housing: defining research needs.

Workshop, 17th December, 2014 (11.00 to 17.00 hrs) Queens Building, De Montfort University, Leicester

Over recent years there has been extensive collaboration between the academic community and social housing providers. Much of this work has taken the form of research and consultancy and has focused on the issues of fuel poverty, energy efficient housing and demand reduction. Feedback from the housing providers has indicated that they would like to be kept informed about the research work being undertaken across the sector and, possibly more importantly, that they are keen to be more actively involved in setting the agenda for that research. This TEDDINET sponsored workshop aims to provide a space for these discussions and agenda setting, putting social housing providers and their needs centre stage.

TEDDINET (http://teddinet.org|) is a UK-wide network for those interested in the potential of digital innovation to reduce energy demand in buildings, bringing together academic researchers, policy makers, industry and those delivering energy efficiency in buildings – such as social housing providers. The workshop will bring together researchers and social landlords to take stock of existing research efforts, exchange findings and discuss gaps from an end-user perspective. The workshop will not only provide a good venue for exchange and networking, it will also help us to draw up a research agenda for the coming years, identify existing opportunities for further collaboration (including some provided through TEDDINET) and provide us with evidence to make the case for additional research resources.
