Low Carbon Homes

'Retrofit Review' is the retrofit-focused newsletter from Low Carbon Homes for those wanting to progress housing retrofit ambitions at-scale.
Why we're #AllForRetrofit:
Domestic property energy consumption equates to 14% of UK carbon emissions. Low Carbon Homes exists to reduce this impact and highlight the wider social and economic benefits of retrofitting existing housing. We are a nationwide market-led platform for professionals and suppliers to learn, share and showcase best-practice. We aim to unpack the complexities of retrofit-at-scale, reduce confusion and promote action.
Unlike centrally-funded programmes, the agenda for Low Carbon Homes is set collaboratively by regional stakeholders - connecting all involved.
Our independent approach results in community-led retrofit action plans that support zero-carbon ambitions, reduce fuel poverty and stimulate local low-carbon economies.
