Summary:imageThe first ever research into the effect of microgeneration on attitudes and behaviours in homes and schools. Set against the government target of reducing carbon dioxide by 60% over the next 50 years, Seeing the Light illuminates the vital role that microgeneration has to play in the UK’s future energy mix.
Recommendations:The report shows that DIY energy generation – from mini wind turbines, solar panels and air source heat pumps – has the power to engage homes and schools to actively cut their energy use and connect with climate change solutions.
