Event Description

Powering, heating, and maintaining existing buildings makes up 16% of our national carbon footprint, and almost all buildings will need to be retrofitted for us to meet our decarbonisation responsibilities. This is certainly a huge challenge, but there are also opportunities to create thousands of green jobs, reduce fuel poverty and inequality, and improve people’s health and wellbeing.

What are the key technologies that will help us achieve this and at what scales can they be applied? What steps are the government taking to increase uptake? What projects are currently doing this work, and what have they learnt? Learn more in our 1-hour webinar with expert speakers at the forefront of this transition in the built environment.

By attending this session you will:

1. Understand what retrofit is and why it is important.

2. Learn about the legislation around retrofit and how it fits into the Government’s net zero 2050 target.

3. Learn why buildings are carbon intensive and what the hotspots are.

4. Hear about existing building fabric, renewable heat, and power technologies.

5. Think about different models of implementation, and the guidance and funding available.

This is session open to anyone who would like to learn more about energy and efficiency retrofit.
