The University of Stirling announced on 6 February that it will lead a study into the challenges associated with fuel poverty affecting people in Alloa, Clackmannanshire.
The study will focus on southern and eastern Alloa and will engage with local community members from a range of third sector organisations. It will support planning around energy provision and provide a robust evidence base to inform future activity associated with the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal.
The project is funded under the UKRI Citizen Science Exploration Grants and Enhancing Place-Based Partnerships awards. The programme is funding 53 projects, worth £1.4mn, to enable members of the public to actively contribute to research and innovation projects.
