SHECANe

Southern Home Energy Conservation Action Network

What is SHECANe?
The Southern Home Energy Conservation Action Network (SHECANe) is a group of 14 local authorities in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight who have worked together since 1997.  This group works together and in partnership with other statutory and non statutory agencies, the business community and the voluntary  sector to help meet their respective Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA) targets.

The Purpose of SHECANe
SHECANe recognises that warm homes are a key factor in determining the health and well-being of local people.  Councils have a vital role to play in improving the quality and comfort of the community and ensuring that residents have access to affordable warmth and can afford to heat their homes to a comfortable level.

  • The Mission of SHECANe:  The Southern Home Energy Conservation Action Network (SHECANe) is a group of local authorities developing partnerships and projects to reduce domestic fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, promote sustainable energy use and to eliminate fuel poverty across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
     
  • The Vision of SHECANe:  SHECANe will continue to be a highly effective partnership working in co-ordination with a thriving network of local, regional and national stakeholders in sustainable energy use, and meeting the targets of the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995

The Aims of SHECANe
In line with the mission and vision of the network, the two core aims of SHECANe are:

  • Wherever possible, to expand the number of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in order to increase the uptake and delivery of the respective measures, and to continue the development of existing sustainable  energy projects.
     
  • To raise the profile of Home Energy Conservation in the SHECANe region, both within local authorities and with external agencies.
