Aerial thermal data capture to help Council to address fuel poverty

thermal surveyBassetlaw District Council has commissioned a night-time thermal survey to help address fuel poverty and provide better detail on private housing stock across the Bassetlaw district. Using a new thermal mapping system, aerial surveying company Bluesky will record highly accurate measurements of heat loss from individual buildings. The resulting property-level digital map will be used in the Council’s Geographical Information System (GIS) to support the Council’s intentions to reduce CO2 in the area and educate the public on energy efficiency.

 

 

“Living in a safe, warm and well-maintained home is essential to enjoying a good quality of life,” commented Kerri Ellis, Sustainability Officer at Bassetlaw District Council, “and we’re working on a fuel poverty reduction campaign to support this objective.” She continued, “The thermal data will help us accurately identify individual properties at risk of fuel poverty and enable us to proactively target households for tailored advice and signposting.

 

“We decided to work with Bluesky on this project as they’ve a good reputation with other Councils, were forthcoming with friendly and practical support and advice during throughout the negotiation period and offered a very competitive price,” concluded Ellis.
