Event description

Description

Energy retrofitting historic buildings


80% of the current building stock will still be in use in 2050. To meet the UK’s carbon targets, an estimated twenty-five million existing homes will need to be energy-retrofitted over the next 30 years, including historic, listed and other hard to treat buildings.


Although a range of deep energy retrofit strategies and standards have evolved like Carbon Lite, EnerPHit and Energie-Sprong, there is no one-size-fits-all solution with historic buildings. Projects are often limited by materials, construction, the condition they are in or existing structure.


Successful energy retrofits are about striking the right balance. Understanding the opportunities and benefits in terms of energy savings, comfort, wellbeing and related costs for each individual measure is key to allowing designers and clients to make informed decisions.


On an item by item basis, this seminar will illustrate the key energy saving opportunities within existing buildings and how to tailor a retrofit master plan. Knowledge will be shared based on completed examples, including deep energy retrofits to EnerPHit, Carbon Lite and Energie-Sprong standards. This seminar will cover the following:


  • What retrofit standards are out there and what’s the difference

  • What design tools to use, good practice guidance and industry standards

  • How to avoid the pitfall: potential risks from insulating historic construction and best practice guidance relating to rising damp, condensation and radon

  • On an item by item basis, comparison of which measures have the greatest impact on heat loss, comfort, costs and energy saving

  • Potential impacts and benefits for ventilation, air quality, humidity, mould and wellbeing
