Big Names Sign Up as Speakers Unveiled for Retrofit Roadshows

29th May, 2013

SE, EDF, Kingspan Insulation and Saint Gobain Isover are amongst a host of over 35 big names who have signed up to exhibit at the Retrofit Roadshows.

The Roadshows kick off in Liverpool on 4th July with Retrofit North West, followed by Retrofit Birmingham and West Midlands on 9th July. The events feature Domestic and Non-Domestic streams aimed at local authorities/RSLs and building owners and asset managers respectively.

The Liverpool programme is headlined by Councillor Tom Moore, Cabinet Member for Transport and Climate Change at Liverpool City Council. Anne Parkes from AGMA and Maggi Howard from collaborative social housing retrofit project Viridis outline how the region is responding.

Professor Paul Ruyssevelt from UCL, Martin Orrill of British Gas and Malcolm Hanna from the NEF also feature prominently in a programme that focuses on demand generation and supply chain mobilisation.

The Birmingham and West Midlands programme is headlined by David Thomas, Deputy Director at DECC responsible for Green Deal Demand. Sandy Taylor, Head of Sustainability at Birmingham City Council, Martin Russell Croucher, Sustainability Director at RICS and Kevin Turnbull, Energy Manager at Birmingham City Airport also feature.

The key theme of the Birmingham event is whether tackling the retrofit challenge at a regional level makes sense. Although 37 local authorities and providers signed up to the BES framework, not all are yet totally committed to the solution.
