SHAP to Play Major Role in Green Deal Summit

18th September, 2012

The Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP) published the Community Green Deal in December 2010, which proposed five building blocks that provide a framework to support a holistic approach to delivery of housing retrofit at scale. The framework moves beyond the many useful technical retrofit pilots to investigate how achieving more energy efficient homes can be delivered at a scale which will drive the low carbon economy, stimulating investment in jobs and skills, and be cost effective for all housing tenures.

The Community Green Deal formed the basis of the SHAP partners discussion and response to the Government Green Deal/ECO consultation in early 2012. As details of the Green Deal and ECO have become clearer, SHAP partners have found the Community Green Deal approach remains a robust framework to draw community benefit from investment in neighbourhood scale housing retrofit.

During 2012 several SHAP Task and Finish Groups have been working to provide evidence on how the objectives of the Community Green Deal can be delivered in practice. The findings of these groups are presented at this session, marking the launch of the SHAP 2012 report Delivering the Community Green Deal.

Alan Yates - Chair SHAP (also Accord Housing Group)
Pat Laughlin - MEBC (Midlands Environmental Business Company)
Paul Davies - Wates Living Space
Paul Dockerill - Inex

Graham Eastwick - ENCRAFT
