A new student-led advice and information service to help households save money on their energy bills, reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency has been opened by London South Bank University (LSBU).

The new LSBU Energy Advice Centre will offer Londoners advice and information on home energy costs (such as getting help with heating bills), plus advice on grants for home energy improvements and reducing energy costs.

It will also offer advice about energy decisions around the home, such as whether to switch to more efficient lightbulbs and the best time to run heating.

‘We are determined to use the huge expertise at LSBU on cutting energy costs to help people save money on their energy bills by opening our brand-new Energy Advice Centre. Rising energy bills and the cost-of-living crisis are hitting people in the pocket and we hope to reach thousands of people through the advice and information on our website, email and face-to-face services.
‘LSBU’s new Energy Advice Centre is the place to come and get advice and information on cutting your home energy costs and getting help with your heating bills.’
LSBU Professor of Heating and Cooling

Community impact

The new LSBU Energy Advice Centre will offer residents online advice and information on energy costs via a website and email (; face-to-face energy advice and information from LSBU Energy Advice Centre, Clarence Centre for Enterprise & Innovation, 126 London Rd, SE1 0AE and energy advice and information at public events in different parts of South London.

‘As a university we have an important role to play in supporting our community to thrive. The LSBU Energy Advice Centre is a student-led initiative with hands-on experience that is a great example of how the research and education we deliver can have a real impact on the lives of people in our local area and beyond.’
