The Town Council has established a Climate Action Sub Committee specifically to champion delivery of the Climate Action Plan. In May 2021 the Sub Committee approved an energy efficiency Action Plan. Tackling fuel poverty and decarbonisation are urgent tasks for local authorities, community organisations and housing providers. Achieving warmer, healthier and greener homes is challenging. Limitations in the supply chain, demand and finance pose significant barriers to achieving improvements. An analysis of the Energy Performance Certificates of the Bridport Area shows that Over 64% of homes fall below SAP Level C and only 8% fall above Sap Level C.
A Brief has been circulated setting out the requirements for an energy efficiency campaign to be run across the Bridport Area in 2021/22. The aim of the energy campaign is to support Bridport households in making the radical reductions in home carbon emissions necessary to avoid runaway climate change. Empowering the Bridport community to create a fair, affordable, zero carbon energy system with local people at its heart.
The brief can be downloaded here.
Responses to the brief should be submitted to David.firstname.lastname@example.org by Noon July 5th 2021.
