The new five-year Shared Green Deal is funded through the EU’s Horizon2020 scheme with researchers working with families in fuel poverty, schools, housing associations and businesses to cut carbon emissions. The overall project involves 24 separate social experiments - taking place in neighbourhoods across Europe - looking at how organisations and individuals can work together to make daily lives more sustainable. Prof Fahy's team is leading the Clean Energy strand of experiments. The research is intended to assist the EU in reaching the target of carbon neutrality by 2050 and to create change at the local level.
