SCEnAT is a powerful new software tool, built to international environmental standards by researchers at the Centre for Energy, Environment and Sustainability at the University of Sheffield, is helping to detect and eliminate carbon hot spots in the supply chain – thus improving productivity, efficiency and regulatory compliance.

The BIG Energy Upgrade sees the University working alongside local authorities, housing associations and energy providers to end fuel poverty in ten of the most deprived communities of Yorkshire and Humber.

A report by researchers based in CEES has found that local authorities can significantly reduce their carbon emissions, secure best value for taxpayers, and use small and medium sized local companies to stimulate economic growth by embedding best practice in their procurement activities.
