Study on home energy and transport use and affordability in the UK

The Consumer Council supports the University of Sussex research project. 

University of Sussex are looking for study participants in Northern Ireland for a research project.

The study is led by the University of Sussex for the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS). The study is run together with the Energy Saving Trust.

The study examines home energy and transport use and affordability in the UK. The UK is moving to a low-carbon society, with an increased use of renewable energy and sustainable transport options. Our study aims to inform policy, practice and research on the future low-carbon energy and transport systems across the UK.

They are looking to interview people who may be finding it hard to pay for their home energy and/or transport costs, or have issues with accessing either service. Interviews will typically last for 20-30 minutes and will be conducted either by phone or online. Participants will be offered a supermarket voucher as a thank you for taking part.
