The Low Carbon Communities Challenge (LCCC) is a two-year research programme funded by DECC providing financial and practical support to 22 "test-bed" communities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The purpose of the challenge is to test delivery options for achieving ambitious cuts in carbon emissions at community level.

Communities selected will be providing energy efficiency improvements to public buildings, including community centres and schools. The LCCC will provide replicable models of what works at a community level, which can inform future Government policy and inspire action in other communities across the country.

The Department receives a variety of correspondence relating to energy efficiency matters.

I don't know why he bothers to ask these questions as he is in NO position to make any difference to anything that happens in parliament. He is after all an INDEPENDENT who condemned political parties before he formed his own one that is.

Roll on the election
