Financing the UK’s Domestic Retrofit

DATE : 22 January 2020
LOCATION : Connected Places Catapult @ Urban Innovation Centre, 1 Sekforde Street, London, EC1R 0BE
START TIME : 8:30 am END TIME : 10:30 am

We need to focus the huge potential offered by the innovative thinking around investment into the green transformation. 80% of our existing housing supply will be responsible for housing the majority of us in 2050.

Currently, the majority of this supply does not meet the decent homes standard and contributes to the UK’s vast carbon emissions. Retrofitting all of our homes to be carbon neutral and fit for future use is an immense undertaking, and the biggest hurdle is developing a strategy for funding this revolution. Join our distinguished panel as we explore the innovative thinking around financing the UK’s housing makeover.

Our talk will be led by guest speakers including:

  • John Palmer from the Passivhaus Trust
  • Richard McWilliams from Turner & Townsend
  • Ian Rigarlsford from Ecology Building Society

More to be confirmed.

Join us to listen and participate.
