dc.description.abstractThe results from three case study dwellings from Swansea, UK, which received retrofitted external wall insulation (EWI) through the first phase of the ARBED scheme in Wales as part of the Welsh Government's carbon emission reductions and fuel poverty policy objectives are explored. Energy consumption, costs and carbon emission data are presented for each case study, which was collected as part of a doctoral research project undertaken in collaboration with two housing associations in Swansea, Wales. This data is analysed to assess alleviation of fuel poverty, reductions in carbon emissions and the payback of the intervention; which was installed across Wales as part of the ARBED scheme. Furthermore, unintended benefits are also discussed and the implications for further dwellings receiving EWI.en_US
