The aim of the SEACS project is to create opportunities to reduce energy demand, implement energy efficiency measures and use clean/renewable energies. The project will raise awareness on the importance of acting now on climate and energy issues and encourage people to change attitudes and behaviours towards energy usage for the long term.
This Anglo-French project will identify practical measures that lead to sustainable energy use in the cross channel region. This will be achieved by learning from past and existing energy related projects and by jointly creating new initiatives.
A cross channel network of six energy ambassadors will jointly raise awareness, advise and promote opportunities for individual households, communities, schools and partner authorities to reduce their energy demand, implement energy efficiency measures and even undertake feasibility studies for clean/renewable energy technology.
SEACS was officially launched in May 2011. This exchange project was developed by five partner organisations: three UK local authorities; Devon County Council, Dorset County Council and Wiltshire Council, the French county council of Côtes d’Armor, and the French agglomeration of Lannion-Trégor. This three year project will also be assisted by key energy and community agencies in each participating country.
