Despite the political turmoil of 2016 CarbonPlan can look back at some key achievements & projects that still managed to push the boundaries in this milestone year for us celebrating our 10 year anniversary with pride.
In 2016 under the Energy Company Obligation legislation we have brought our lifetime carbon emissions analysis tally to more than 844,000tCO2 across over 10,000 homes with energy efficiency measures and district heating. In context this is equivalent to offsetting all the regulated carbon emissions of all the new build homes built in 2016 for the next year or two… so far the projects that have been implemented are due to save over half a million tCO2 over the life of the measures.
