South East New Energy (SENE) Project

We’re a delivery partner for the South East New Energy (SENE) Project, a collaborative research project led by the University of East London (UEL). The project’s main aim is to build a stronger local energy and accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy Local Energy in the south east of England.

Our role in the project is to improve the energy efficiency of 50 homes in Kent. The focus is on using innovative retrofit technologies. We’ll install ‘fabric first’ measures to these homes, such as loft and cavity wall insulation, to:

  • Deliver deeper reductions in carbon emissions
  • Reduce heat loss and energy bills
  • Improve customers’ comfort.

The SENE project was set up to engage with a diverse group of individuals and organisations to help them better understand and eliminate the barriers to reducing carbon emissions.

The project will also help local areas to stimulate their economic development by investing in projects supporting innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations. We’re working with several delivery partners including the UEL, Kent County Council, Community Works and Retrofit Works.

The SENE project has received funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The Department for Communities and Local Government (and in London the intermediate body Greater London Authority) is the Managing Authority for European Regional Development Fund.
