The Role of Insulation will examine the different options available for wall; roof and floor insulation as well as the different types of insulating materials and their performance. Ways of quantifying thermal performance will be covered including thermal conductivity and U-values. The savings from installing external wall insulation on park homes will be investigated and the wider benefits for residents. Options for improving the thermal performance in the future will also be considered.
Our vision is to end fuel poverty. We work across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to ensure that everyone can afford to live in a warm home.
We do this by providing advice and support to people struggling to heat their homes affordably, either directly or via community engagement projects and outreach. Campaigning and advocacy to ensure that the needs of fuel poor households are at the heart of policy decisions. Undertaking research and sharing insights. Developing accredited training and qualifications to improve standards of energy advice.
