Take up of schemes that GLA (through the LDA) offer The RE:NEW Programme (Formally known as Home Energy Efficiency Programme - HEEP) provides home insulation information as part of its service support for house-holders. The GLA/LDA use the RE:NEW Programme to assist home owners to insulate their homes through existing schemes delivered in London rather than LDA specific schemes, for example; Warm Zones or Energy Utilities’ Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT). Take up rates of home energy efficiency measures implemented through the Mayoral/London borough pan-London homes retrofit programme Some 817 technical trials for the RE:NEW Programme (formally known as the Homes Energy Efficiency Programme – HEEP) were carried out. Of the ten energy efficiency measures offered (low energy light bulbs, radiator panels, ‘save a flush’, tap aerators, hot water tank jacket, stand-by-switches, real time displays, aerated showerhead, shower timer and energy efficiency advice) an average of seven out of ten were taken up. In addition it is estimated that approximately 8,000 demonstrations projects were carried out in homes during 2009/10. Data on these will be available by the end of May. The RE:NEW Programme is being rolled out in 2010/11. ➜ ➜
