Research into Carbon emissions, warmth and comfort by Emma Sutherland.


Participants required: research into carbon emissions, warmth and comfort.

Hi, I’m Emma, a PhD researcher studying at the University of Edinburgh and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC). My PhD is investigating issues relating to Scotland’s targets to reduce residential carbon emissions and how individuals can continue to keep warm and comfortable in their homes.  I’m keen to interview participants (aged 18 and over) in the Scottish Borders on issues relating to heat, energy efficient technology and comfort in their home. Interviews should last no more than 1 hour and would ideally take place at the participant’s address, during May and June.

If you would be interested in taking part please enter your contact details (name, postcode and email/phone number) on Survey Monkey and I will get in touch with you with further information.

Alternatively, you can contact me on the phone number or email address below to register interest. As a thank you, those who have registered an interest in being interviewed will be entered into a prize draw to win a £30 Love2shop voucher.
