Event Details

Regeneration commonly focuses on large scale redevelopment projects, demolishing old estates and rebuilding as high quality communities. But while reconstruction will often be the preferred solution for a particular estate, regenerating the UK’s cities will mean transforming areas where it is impractical or unviable to demolish and rebuild. At the same time, the term retrofit is frequently used interchangeably with the installation of energy efficiency measures in a property. But it is now widely understood that the wider benefits can have a regenerative impact for residents and the local area residents in terms of reduced running costs, improved health and wellbeing, and better safety and security.

There is a growing body of work around these wider benefits of retrofit and approaches which focus more on transforming homes rather than just installing measures. UK-GBC’s Regeneration and Retrofit Task Group is currently building the business case for retrofit-led regeneration projects in terms of social, economic and environmental benefits and examining the ways that retrofit-led regeneration projects can be delivered. The All Party Parliamentary Fuel Poverty & Energy Efficiency Group has recently published A Prospectus for Universal Affordable Warmth which highlights how different types of affordable warmth schemes can create huge public and commercial benefits.

Jointly hosted by the Energy Saving Trust, National Energy Action and the UK Green Building Council, this workshop will bring together the broad spectrum of stakeholders interested in area-based retrofit of low income estates and disseminate some of the current work in this area. The intention is to identify key success factors in delivering high quality retrofit projects and explore what further work might be needed to encourage these approaches.

The workshop is kindly supported by AkzoNobel, sponsor of UK-GBC’s Regeneration and Retrofit Task Group.
