Carbon Co-op is an energy services and advocacy co-operative that helps people and communities to make the radical reductions in home carbon emissions necessary to avoid runaway climate change.Our aim is to help people and communities make big savings in the amount of energy they use and in doing so to tackle climate change collectively. To achieve that, we deliver energy services and carry out advocacy work around the role of citizen-led approaches to the energy transition. Our work is broad and wide reaching, with the aim of demonstrating the ambition possible in carbon saving and to put people and communities at the heart of what we do. Much of the work we do is around retrofit – many of the homes in the UK are poorly performing in energy terms and need insulation, heat pumps and other improvements to help reduce energy demand, improve comfort and tackle issues such as fuel poverty. For many years now we have developed expertise in advising people on what to do, training and resourcing them with the capacity to commission works and actually delivering retrofit services such as assessments, low cost finance and even large scale retrofit works.
