Nicola was voted the winner of the Environment Zone in March 2013. Nicola and two of her PhD colleagues run The Energy Community, a website raising awareness of how you can save money on your energy bills.
The site aims to make energy advice simple and easy to understand, and also run energy workshops and support lessons in local schools.
Nicola’s prize money was used to develop an interactive game on the site, ‘Energy Explorer’. In it you can explore the different rooms of a house, interacting with different objects and reading about how to save energy.
