The Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) team at the Welsh School of Architecture have been successful in securing £1 million funding from Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council to carry out monitoring and evaluation as part of the Homes As Power Stations (HAPS) project that will run from 2022-2027.
The LCBE team have been commissioned to monitor and evaluate the implementation of low carbon solutions and the impact these will have on the homes and people who live in them across the four local authority areas of the ‘Swansea Bay City Region’: Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. The HAPS programme aims to address climate change through delivering carbon neutral alternatives in line with the decarbonisation agenda, improving health and well-being, tackling fuel poverty and ensuring people have the necessary skills which reflect the broad nature of the renewables sector.
Using their extensive relevant experience, the LCBE team will monitor and evaluate the homes that have adopted the HAPS approach, in a coordinated and non-intrusive way to provide evidence on the technological performance, environmental conditions, energy costs and fuel poverty, energy savings, behaviour and improvements in health and well-being associated with the solutions that have been implemented. This work leads directly on from the research that the LCBE team have been carrying out, delivering whole house energy system retrofits and new builds from planning through design, procurement, installation, and performance evaluation. The team have worked closely with all stakeholders involved and have a deep understanding of the challenges faced by the different stakeholders at the different stages of delivery. They have also collected valuable evidence on the performance of the systems, the individual technologies, the Homes as Power Stations (HAPS) is a pioneering programme that will facilitate the adoption the integration of energy efficient design and renewable and storage technologies in more than 10,300 new build and existing homes across the public, private and third sectors. The programme will also help to develop a sustainable, skilled regional supply chain for low carbon solutions in homes supported by a regional supply chain development fund.
