Retrofit for the future research results analysed

17th April, 2013

Three of 37 homes retrofitted with energy saving measures under the Technology Strategy Board (TSB)backed Retrofit for the Future programme have so far been found to have met the 80% target reduction for in-use CO2 emissions. A further 23 have achieved an emissions reduction equivalent to between 50% and 80%.
The findings are contained in the new TSB report, Retrofit revealed, which analyses the data collated from the programme. The data itself is being made available via a dedicated website to help develop retrofit knowledge.

The Retrofit for the Future research programme was developed to act as a catalyst for the retrofit market, by showcasing innovative approaches to low carbon domestic refit. Under the scheme 194 projects were initially awarded up to £20,000 funding to develop strategies to achieve an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions in an existing property. Additional funding of up to £150,000 was awarded to 86 projects to implement their proposals.
The report says the results inspire confidence that CO2 emissions reductions of 50% or more “can currently be achieved by a range of organisations and delivery teams in the UK low-carbon retrofit market”.
