New Fantastic Home Energy Efficiency Exhibition

A popular energy efficiency exhibition which has offered advice to more than 23,000 people in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire over the last nine years is going to be refurbished thanks to a grant. Marches Energy Agency (MEA), the charity which runs the exhibition, known as the Fantastic Home, has been given almost £10,000 by Awards for All to refit the vehicle which houses the exhibition and create new, interactive displays. The Fantastic Home also receives regular funding from the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Local Authority Energy Partnership, which is made up of all the local authorities in the area.
Caroline Harmon, of MEA, said: ‘The Fantastic Home is really popular at community events across the two counties and provides a fun way to learn about living in a eco-friendly way. Over the years we’ve helped people to better understand how to keep their home warm and energy efficient; how to lower their energy bills; and how to make use of renewables at home. This funding will help us update the van to reflect new developments such as electric vehicles, LED lighting and battery storage for renewable energy. We’ll also still be able to advise on keeping warm in your home and what to do if you’re struggling to pay your energy bills.’
