WORKSHOP
Energy switching: advice and practical help – bring a copy of your most recent energy bill!

Worthing homes initially undertook a multi award winning pilot study, known as Relish™ (Residents 4 Low Impact Sustainable Homes), covering four of their homes to assess the most cost effective methods of retrofit on a modest budget including teaching residents simple ways to save energy.

This show flat demonstrates the impact of cavity wall insulation, good double glazing, high efficiency boiler and controls. At the same time, the flat enjoys carefully detailed draught proofing and airtightness, coupled with energy saving ventilation.

Yet the flat goes beyond simple fabric improvements, serving also as a teaching environment with tips for managing energy use illustrated using eye catching cartoons and labels on the relevant equipment. Residents have access to an energy advisor and are given free energy monitors, to help them track down waste and control costs.

Developed in 2009 and still going strong, the Worthing Homes Relish project takes a sensible and low cost approach to reducing household fuel bills.  Its innovative approach is still being recognised today; Relish has gone on to win numerous sustainability awards including recently - Sustainable Housing Provider winner, national winners with Constructing Excellence as well as being included in the Sustania100 list of inspiring international solutions.
