  • What are the limits and barriers?

  • What are the effects and impacts of the LCCC interventions on behaviour change, energy use, and CO2 reductions, and how sustainable are they?

  • How useful is DECoRuM for communities and policy makers in measuring, tracking, visualising and communicating CO2 savings to communities?

  • How are energy displays used in a social context, and how can they be used to best effect to raise awareness and change practices?
