Zero Carbon Rugeley

Innovate UK
Creating circular solutions

How we helped

Symeco was part of the consortium designing a blueprint for converting Rugeley into a zero-carbon town by creating a Smart Local Energy System (SLES). Funded by Innovate UK, Symeco is working as part of the Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP) team focussing on a domestic retrofit plan. 

SHAP’s findings demonstrated the complexity around scaling up retrofit for the 10,500 domestic properties. Some of the challenges included accurate data about the housing stock, supply chain skills and availability, grid constraint and customer engagement.

Let's work together


If you are a business, local authority, NGO or community organisation looking for advice and ideas about energy systems, renewable technologies, retrofit and energy saving, please contact Symeco to give some idea of your problem and what sort of solution you require.


If you are interested in working together on a new project or a bid, please email and we can arrange a discussion.
