Energy Statement Resources

CLASP Energy Statement Resources
CLASP Energy Statement and Carbon Calculation Resources

To supplement CLASP’s training on energy statement formulation and evaluation we have gathered together links to resources that authorities can use to evaluate proposals (and to help applicants submit proposals in a way that provides the necessary information).

A number of tools, guidance documents, training materials and case studies exist, most of which are free to access. A * indicates resources that incur a charge. As a starting point you may wish to familiarise yourself with the CLASP training material included in the second column.

If you would like to suggest additional resources for this page, or report a problem with a link let us know via
