CEES, in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Citizens Advice Bureau, Groundwork Dearne Valley and Keepmoat Homes have successfully secured £872,000 of funding to support the roll out and delivery of the Government's flagship Green Deal initiative.

£109,000 of this funding came from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Green Deal Pioneer Places fund.

The Green Deal is a national scheme that enables the installation of a range of home energy efficiency measures such as solid wall insulation, cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and new boilers with no up-front cost.

The Green Deal Pioneer Places scheme will help to launch the Green Deal at a local level. The Centre for Energy, Environment and Sustanability will undertake a monitoring and evaluation role within the project, and will work closely in collaboration with all of the project partners.

The project leader is Professor Lenny Koh, the support officer is Dr Stanimira Taneva and the monitoring and evaluation associate is Robert Marchand

This project complements with the £15million European ERDF funded BIG Energy Upgrade project (PI Professor Lenny Koh) with a large multi-disciplinary team of academics and researchers across the Faculties of Social Sciences, Engineering and Science, and a large consortium of partners. CEES and Management School are leading on this.
