Collaborating to help the industry tackle retrofit at scale across the UK.

What is Retrofit?

Retrofit means changing existing buildings to make them more energy efficient; making fabric changes, technology changes and occupier behavioural changes. This is focused on energy reduction: ensuring that the building needs less energy to heat and power it, and energy generation: ensuring that the energy required to heat and power the building comes from less carbon intensive sources. We need to retrofit the building stock across the UK for many reasons, including to lower the carbon emissions produced from running them, and to provide cleaner, healthier places for people to live and work.
