  • 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.
