Working with householders and the Carbon Co-op

URBED are acting as designers and retrofit consultants on 13 owner-occupied houses across Greater Manchester as part of the region's 'Go Early' low carbon retrofit programme. We are working closely with the Carbon Co-op to deliver this - a mutual organisation made up of individual householders. The work is being paid for through a zero interest loan to householders, funded by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), and money from the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).


URBED's Helen Grimshaw will be taking part in a panel debate at the Labour Party Conference fringe on Monday 22 September, 12.45pm to 2.15pm entitl

We’ll have our fingers crossed for Carbon Co-op who are nominated for Energy Reduction Project of the Year at the Community Energy Awards.

Helen Grimshaw of URBED and Jonathan Atkinson, of Carbon Co-op are presenting at the Behave Energy Conference 2014.
