Creative Energy Homes

Creative Energy Homes


Creative Energy Homes is a £1.9m project, that is a key resource, particularly with respect to micro-smart grids, energy storage, demand-side management and occupants’ acceptance of innovative technologies.

The seven-house development provides a living test-site for leading firms including; E.ON, David Wilson Homes, BASF, Roger Bullivant, the Mark Group, Tarmac and Saint Gobain, to work with the University to investigate the integration of energy efficient technologies into houses.

This high profile project attracts over 3000 visitors every year, including the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Climate and Housing Ministers, MPs, Vice Chancellors, Industry, Government Departments, Schools and Colleges.

The research findings have fed into the UK government’s Green Deal strategy and the Nottingham Community Climate Change Strategy, and have received widespread acclaim through a number of public engagement activities, reaching out to over 5 million people.
