Abstract

Our project, sponsored by the University of Worcester, established a baseline energy consumption profile of residents within the Arboretum in Worcester, England. We performed door-to-door canvassing, spoke with 240 residents, and received a total of 102 survey responses. We found that residents struggle with energy bills, costs of retrofits, and heating. We recommended that future researchers continue to engage the community, create an educational campaign to teach energy conservation behaviors, and facilitate smart meter implementation within the Arboretum.
