Making Social Housing Warm, Energy Efficient and Fair following the Grenfell Disaster


Anne Power, Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics and Head of LSE Housing and Communities.

There is a huge imperative to insulate our homes to very high standards. We have around 9500 high rise blocks of six storeys or above that are cold and damp in our climate without cladding. There is fire-proof external insulation but it is expensive and has to be installed professionally. Why did this not happen to Grenfell Tower? The corner-cutting that led to 80 tragic deaths had huge long-term consequences that threaten the future of what might be done to make social housing viable so that it lasts into the future, houses people decently and protects our environment.
