Research Objectives
1. Develop understanding of energy use by investigating and
  comparing people's different „energy biographies‟ across a
  range of social settings

2. Examine how existing demand reduction interventions
  interact with people's personal biographies and histories.

3. Develop improved understanding of how different
  community types can support reductions in energy
  consumption

…We will also be exploring the usefulness of innovative
 (narrative, longitudinal and visual) research methods for
 helping people reflect on the ways they use energy

How do you actually create an organisation that is
sustainable?(“Steve”, Ely)



     Action in Caerau and Ely, ACE, is all about making sustainable the
community work which has been done in Ely the last few years. So it's about
[wanting to] create a credible local organisation that was owned and run by
local people that had the capacity and the sort of policies and procedures in
place to employ staff, manage buildings, possibly take on buildings from the
Council through asset transfers; generate income through sort of Business &
 Social Enterprise …one of the big things we're hoping to do is that ACE will
  employ Communities First staff and take over the programmes that will
 bring in some income through management fees but it also starts to locate
the staff locally, giving local control over it and that sort of stuff. So there's a
 sort of philosophical reason for that, about empowerment and stuff (Steve,
                                        Ely).

Working together: Urban communities as Sustainable Places, by Professor Karen Henwood

  • 1. Researching sustainable energy: community led initiatives and energy biographies Prof. Karen Henwood* Henwoodk@cardiff.ac.uk Dr Karen Parkhill^ Dr Catherine Butler^ Dr Fiona Shirani* Professor Nick Pidgeon^ *School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University ^School of Psychology, Cardiff University www.energybiographies.org
  • 2. Research Objectives 1. Develop understanding of energy use by investigating and comparing people's different „energy biographies‟ across a range of social settings 2. Examine how existing demand reduction interventions interact with people's personal biographies and histories. 3. Develop improved understanding of how different community types can support reductions in energy consumption …We will also be exploring the usefulness of innovative (narrative, longitudinal and visual) research methods for helping people reflect on the ways they use energy
  • 3. • Build own • More deprived • More • One of the Peterston-Super-Ely Tir-Y-Gafel Ely & Caerau eco-homes urban affluent largest London • 75% basic community suburb of employers in Cardiff SW London needs from • Population: • 700,00 their land 28000 • Goal of patients a • Some desire • Community improving year to upscale to voluntary org local • Subject to help urban • Promoting environment CRC –EES sustainability sustainable & make life • Carbon living & in the village management addressing more & fuel poverty sustainable implementati • Solar PV on plan • Solar PV • Promote (community) (private) “Green • Social • Energy culture” Enterprise Efficiency • Energy Efficiency
  • 4. Phases of research Phase 2b: Phase 2a: Extended Phase 1: Context Narrative Biographies & (Interviews Interviews Multimodal July 2011- Method December 2011- December 2011) May 2012 May 2012- February 2013
  • 5. Biographical narrative interviews Daily Routine Time (past, presents & Community futures) Transitions
  • 6. How do you actually create an organisation that is sustainable?(“Steve”, Ely) Action in Caerau and Ely, ACE, is all about making sustainable the community work which has been done in Ely the last few years. So it's about [wanting to] create a credible local organisation that was owned and run by local people that had the capacity and the sort of policies and procedures in place to employ staff, manage buildings, possibly take on buildings from the Council through asset transfers; generate income through sort of Business & Social Enterprise …one of the big things we're hoping to do is that ACE will employ Communities First staff and take over the programmes that will bring in some income through management fees but it also starts to locate the staff locally, giving local control over it and that sort of stuff. So there's a sort of philosophical reason for that, about empowerment and stuff (Steve, Ely).
  • 7. But I really liked the idea of this community feedback, so once they're [solar PV panels] on, they're on and they're generating money for the community all the time. (Kelly, Ely) So things like [supporting different community groups] that I would see it doing that and things like the Allotment Project that they've started doing more with that so people can grow their own veg, just things that bring communities together really (Kelly, Ely)
  • 8. Connecting Communities: Research as an underused asset • Intellectual and creative resources • Social networks (across different sectors of society including socio-economic & urban-rural divisions) • Time • Shared learning through engagement around sustainability • Knowledge exchange to - create awareness of perspectives & diversity - inform future directions of research - promote community uplift & sustainable place making
  • 9. www.energybiographies.org • About EBs • Outputs • Making links (case sites & other research) • Sharing knowledges & experience: write your own energy biography
