Cutting carbon in Stoke Newington's homes

About

This aim of this blog is to chart the progress of a modest home energy efficiency refurbishment project which we are starting in Stoke Newington. This project was initiated by Fran and Jamie from the Buildings Group at Transition Town Stoke Newington and aims to demonstrate to the wider community the range of measures which can be applied to homes in the N16 area.

North London homes are for the most part beautiful but inefficient, draughty, solid wall Victorian terrace homes. This means that they burn a lot of energy, cost a lot to run and generate substantial CO2 emissions. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Hopefully we will inspire others from Stoke Newington to take steps to reduce their home’s energy consumption and live a more comfortable, low carbon life.
