… Future

Wizard of Oz v2The development of both Neutral Territory and the Low Carbon Champions CIC programme are underpinned by action research projects involving academics and interns from local universities.

We originally contributed to the evaluation phase of the original Low Carbon Champions project with Essex University and learned a lot of lessons from this including our innovative typology of case-types based on the Wizard of Oz (see right).

This research continues and tries to understand and explain successful and unsuccessful low carbon interventions in SMEs.  The results are fed back into the activities of both Neutral Territory and the Low Carbon Champions CIC to ensure they remain relevant to the people they aim to serve.
