Climate Challenge Project Update

The latest on the EWH Energy Efficiency and sustainability project.

May 18, 2010

Essential tips for householders on energy saving are now available, and work has started on an environmental plan.

The results of the survey into energy efficiency in the houses of the Old and New Town have been collected and compiled, and will be used to inform future projects. The first of these are tips for residents of the World Heritage Site, about how they can change their behaviour and modify their homes without compromising their historic and architectural character of their building.

The project officer has also been joined by a volunteer, Geneviève Rodrigue from Quebec. Geneviève is studying for a master’s degree in Environmental Management at the Université de Sherbrooke, in Canada. The main focus of her study is sustainability, and so she is able to bring new experience to the Climate Challenge Project.

Geneviève’s main task will be to work on a research project, identifying the environmental targets and challenges that Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site is facing. This research will be conducted mainly around energy efficiency and open spaces, and the results will form an environmental plan for the entire site.
