- Domestic buildings are responsible for approximately 23% of total UK carbon emissions. About two-thirds of existing properties will be still standing in 2050. Work must be done now to address the energy efficiency of existing property stock.
- Deep retrofitting for 2050 targets is challenging and costly. The UK is well placed to show excellence in retrofit innovation thinking, taking out the costs through innovation.
- UK cities can converge their needs to scale up the demand for deep retrofitting. This will produce economies of scale for finance, procurement and supply, thereby further reducing the cost.
- There are perceived benefits and challenges, for example private finance, innovative procurement, engagement with the “Build Of Site” operators.
Who should attend:
- Cities who are engaged or interested in deep retrofitting
- Practitioners that are looking to accelerate the retrofit markets and build on the innovation practices in place.
- Financiers interested in creating innovative investment schemes
- Those seeking to have a voice in quantifying the barriers and voice options to government interventions to reduce the barrier impact
- Those keen to learn and benchmark the UK’s Retrofit capability.
Benefits of attending:
- Networking and sharing best practices across the cities: Finance; Procurement; Supply chain; technologies
- Scaling up demand
- Understanding strengths and challenges, improving solutions.
