'Gr' Eight Associates volunteer with St Mungo's
Well done to Eight Associates who recently conducted a two-part energy workshop with members of St Mungo’s Recovery College in Rushworth Street. The aim of the workshops were to address the issue of fuel poverty by discussing the different aspects of energy consumption in buildings.
A small-scale energy audit of the College was undertaken by participants to reinforce ideas shared during the initial session regarding energy consumption and efficiency. Participants were so enthuastic about the exercise some of them continued to finish the audit in their own time after the first part of the workshop was finished. The workshops were a great success and have helped the participants gain a better understanding of energy saving practices and what information there is available to them when choosing the most energy efficient accommodation. This information will be invaluable to the participants when they move into their own accomodation in the future.
