This CREDS and Building & Cities webinar (20 Oct at 2pm) addresses how retrofits for domestic buildings can be delivered at scale to meet climate targets.
This CREDS and Building & Cities joint event addresses how retrofits for domestic buildings can be delivered at scale to meet climate targets.
There is a large gulf between current slow retrofitting rates and the portion of domestic buildings that rapidly need intervention to meet climate targets. This webinar reflects on a recent Buildings & Cities special issue which begins to address this gap by focusing on delivering retrofit at scale.
- What policy initiatives can create the right conditions (energy service models, business retrofit models and consumer demand) to encourage mass retrofit?
- What coordination between actors (central or local government, private sector companies, professional organisations) is needed to enable mass retrofit?
- What specific capabilities and capacities need to be created in construction supply chains? How can these be supported?
