An energy database for social housing in Wales to inform housing and energy efficiency policies, such as the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS) that will allow the impact of interventions to be evaluated.

The SHREWD project is funded as part of the Smart Energy Research Laboratory (SERL) and will create an energy database for social housing in Wales to inform housing and energy efficiency policies, such as the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS). SHREWD will recruit households from the social housing sector and use data obtained from social landlords to monitor the impact of interventions. The SERL observatory will be used as a control to compare results with the wider UK housing stock.
