South Seeds’ Energy Snapshot Report has been shortlisted for the Design Impact Award 2014. Until 23rd October there is an exhibition of all those shortlisted at the Lighthouse, in Glasgow.

Energy snapshot report coverThe report is a combination of research into local housing in Govanhill, Crosshill, Queen’s Park and Strathbungo and a plan for delivering South Seeds’ energy demand reduction service in the area. The report maps tenure, housing condition and identifies 10 categories of housing, including 5 different types of pre 1919 tenements.

By sharing knowledge about the condition and type of homes across the area, South Seeds have enabled residents and stakeholders to start making improvements.

The report has had a huge impact, it has allowed South Seeds to deliver its successful home energy auditing service within the area and also participate in the development of energy policy both regionally and nationally.
