Carbon Descent / Solar water heating for London homes

Area of work:

Solar for London was a five-year programme to install solar water heaters in London homes, run by SEA (now Carbon Descent).

The aim was to help reduce the number of people who are unable to afford to keep their homes warm, and also to cut carbon emissions. The project worked with people living in both private and social housing.
