Middleport Environment Project Energy Savers

This case study describes the Middleport Community Energy Savers Project, a domestic energy efficiency project which was delivered by a partnership of organisations and residents. The aim of the project was to train and support residents to deliver energy efficiency and affordable warmth advice in their own communities and to seek to establish a legacy of self-supporting energy groups in two culturally different communities:

Shrewsbury: a market town with a relatively middle class ‘green’ culture.

Silverdale: an ex-mining ‘village’ on the edge of the Stoke/Newcastle conurbation.
