MEA are an independent charity specialising in delivering practical, creative and effective solutions to fuel poverty. They also work to promote energy reduction and accelerate the uptake of renewable energy solutions. For a few years they have used a wrapped van as a learning tool to show various ways of limiting heat and energy loss from the home. This van has provided an interactive learning environment, which could be easily taken to various events.
The original wrap was designed to look like the exterior of a house which had been photographed by a thermal imaging camera. The side door could then be pulled across to reveal a room inside the van detailing what insulation and methods had been employed to limit the heat loss.
