We recently attended a workshop run by the SunPeople Project at Plymouth University’s Sustainability Hub.
The European (Interreg) funded project seeks to explore new ways to reduce carbon emissions from heating through the use of combined solar and heat pump solutions, and providing an energy service to increase uptake. They’ll focus on opportunities for residential (private and social housing) and commercial premises with the aim of devising a business model that can be replicated through community energy groups and businesses.
SunPeople involves four partners in France and England, focusing principally on the urban centres of Lorient, Brittany and Plymouth. The project is led by Agence locale de l’énergie de Bretagne Sud (ALOEN) and includes Aezeo SARL (France), Plymouth City Council and Plymouth Energy Community (PEC).
