Title of Challenge
How can we deliver domestic carbon reduction in an age of austerity?
Description of city challenge
Innovative new business models are needed to ensure energy efficiency fulfils its potential to create carbon savings and cost savings for the city of Leeds. A third of Leeds’ carbon emissions are due to domestic energy consumption, which contributes substantially to GDP loss to the city. Although Leeds City Council has been successful in attracting funding for efficiency measures in the past, recent national policy changes mean these are no longer cost effective.
We want people from a wide range of backgrounds to join the Leeds Climathon and come up with alternative ways of approaching and, crucially, financing this. One option is the potential of a revolving fund*, which captures and reinvests savings, specifically: finance sources for it; durability, versatility and attractiveness of design; its appeal to landlords and property owners and how it can fund the more expensive measures required by older homes.
Other options include new initiatives to maximise householder participation in existing low cost solutions and novel solutions for improving energy efficiency, especially in the private rented sector.
Whatever your approach to this challenge, we want to hear from people with imagination, flair, experience and skills up for a mind-melding 24 hours of teamwork to catalyse domestic carbon reduction across the city. The Climathon is particularly suitable for individuals or existing teams with expertise in the following areas:
• Finance
• Legal
• Governance
• Community
• Housing
• Energy & renewables
• Retrofitting/insulation
• Charities/NGOs
• Entrepreneurs/Start ups
• SMEs
• Buildings
• Property rentals
• Computing
• Modelling
• Social enterprise
• Engineering
• Climate change science
• Fuel poverty
• Policy
• Anyone with an interest and passion for climate change issues
