… buildings, AECOM carried out building energy audits on a range of properties owned and operated by Adur & Worthing Councils. The table below summarises the results of these audits, listing the potential intervention areas that could be considered, along with an estimate of the carbon savings that could be achieved. These estimates account for the energy efficiency improvement measures in addition…

… the use of electric heating and vehicles. For instance, energy efficiency improvements in buildings enable systems such as heat pumps to work at a higher level of efficiency. Similarly, a large-scale shift to the use of electric vehicles must be accompanied by a significant modal shift towards walking, cycling, ridesharing, and an increase in the use of public transport. As buildings and vehicles…

… assessment of grid and transport decarbonisation and rapid uptake for energy efficiency measures, there will be significant residual CO2e emissions that would require offsetting. Further work and consultation would be required to identify the most appropriate and cost-effective opportunities, but these could include:  Investing in off-site renewable electricity generation. Note that, at present…

measures and behaviour change – Based on statistics provided in the UK National Energy Efficiency Database (NEED)15 we have assumed that fabric upgrades could reduce demand for heating by around 10%, and that electricity use could decrease by around 5% through a combination of behavioural change measures and smart energy management.  Switching from the use of gas-fired heating to electric systems…

… laid out in Section 4. 3.2 Carbon emissions projections The graphs below show historic emissions for the Councils, along with a hypothetical ‘Business as Usual’ trajectory. The other routes to net zero show the cumulative impact of sequentially adopting measures to: 1. Reduce energy demands in buildings; 2. Switch from gas boilers to efficient electric heating systems; 3. Reduce vehicle…
