URBED and Carbon Co-op successfully applied to the Chesshire Lehmann Fund in 2014 to enable further evaluation of the Retrofit - Go Early project. The Chesshire Lehmann Fund was established in memory of Professor John Chesshire and Dr Peter Lehmann and has the primary objective of supporting academics and community groups wishing to undertake active research or evaluation into the relationship between fuel poverty and energy efficiency. 


The next Routes to Retrofit training will take place on the 7th and 14th October at Bridge 5 Mill, Manchester.
