Evaluation of the Olympic Retrofit programme

Client: 

Greater London Authority

Ecorys recently completed an evaluation of the RE:NEW (home energy efficiency) and RE:FIT (schools retrofit) programmes in the four host boroughs. The evaluation took a mixed methods approach, which included quantitative and qualitative research with participating households, and qualitative research and site visits to participating schools - along with a review of scheme monitoring data and interviews with key staff and stakeholders.

Ecorys Survey produced an online survey which was distributed to participating households to explore their satisfaction with the scheme, their use of the energy-saving measures that had been provided and any change in energy-using behaviour or fuel bills.

The final report presented a synthesis of data for each scheme, along with a series of practical recommendations to inform future intervention in these areas.
