The Design Council’s Red Project aims to find ways for homes to become less energy intensive and combat climate change.
One third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions come from residential households. Householders could reduce this by making their houses more efficient, generating their own energy, switching suppliers or simply switching off.
We think people need a bit of well designed help. Bills are confusing, energy use is invisible and installations are tedious.
Our project proposes new products, services and policies to help householders save energy – and reduce C02 emissions.
Here’s our design-for-energy manifesto. We want YOU to take a look and tell us what you think needs to happen.
