  • Explore approaches to building affordable zero-carbon homes
  • Retrofit existing homes and commercial buildings
  • Switch their vehicle fleets to lower carbon alternatives
  • Develop community and commercial energy projects
  • Design, develop and bring to market new low carbon products and services
