Affordable HEAT/ Affordable COOL
The phenomenon of excess winter deaths has been at the forefront of the debate on fuel poverty and poor housing for many years. Conversely the debate about excess deaths from heat is a fairly new area of study which has been given added prominence in light of the Stern report and the Fourth Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007) which indicate that climate change is only likely to worsen in coming years.
This project aims to find a viable solution to the problems faced by households whose health, comfort and well-being is unduly affected by exposure to both extremes of heat and cold.
