We’re looking for co-designers for an online Energy Choices tool

21 July 2021

Energy advice organisations: would you like to co-design a web-based Energy Choices tool with us?

We're creating a digital application for use by energy advisors to support clients in vulnerable circumstances with the challenge of navigating the evolving smart energy market. An example of its use might be a way of assessing which clients could benefit from smart tariffs or ‘heat as a service’, and which would not.

This work is being done as part of Phase 2 of Smart and Fair?

Karen Smith is overseeing the co-design process. "We're seeking input from energy advisors from UK energy advice organisations in August-September 2021. They would participate in online focus groups, be interviewed by our researchers and provide feedback during the development of Energy Choices. And, of course, we don't expect people's time for nothing: we'll be paying each advisor for up to 4.5 days of their time."

For more information or to express an interest in co-creating this valuable advisor resource, please email karen.smith@cse.org.uk. We'll be selecting organisations in early August.
