Domestic buildings are responsible for approximately 23% of total UK carbon emissions. About two-thirds of existing properties will be still standing in 2050. Work must be done now to address the energy efficiency of existing property stock.
Deep retrofitting for 2050 targets is challenging and costly. The UK is well placed to show excellence in retrofit innovation thinking, taking out the costs through innovation.
UK cities can converge their needs to scale up the demand for deep retrofitting. This will produce economies of scale for finance, procurement and supply, thereby further reducing the cost.
There are perceived benefits and challenges, for example private finance, innovative procurement, engagement with the “Build Off Site” operators.
