The UK has one of the oldest housing stocks in Europe. It is a huge challenge for the sector to upgrade and retrofit these buildings while meeting the zero carbon targets.
Statistics have noted that homes produce 13 per cent of all UK’s carbon emissions, while buildings account to a third of the country’s CO2 emissions. To achieve ambitious climate targets the sector needs to reuse and upgrade our current building stock at a scale and pace never seen before.
What are the current challenges to retrofit period properties? What are the techniques to carry out low carbon interventions and make residential properties energy efficient?
In this webinar we will hear key experts presenting sustainable solutions for retrofitting the home.
