As every home is unique, what low carbon solutions are required to retrofit the 27 million homes?


Cambridge Cleantech and pjb Associates are once again teaming up to bring you the best of cleantech in order to achieve sustainable homes.

This SIG primarily looks at the UK market and its 27 million homes, many of which will require deep retrofitting and installation of renewable energy services, in order for the UK to meet its legal Zero Carbon targets by 2050.

In this webinar, we will be discussing the importance of retrofitting the millions of UK homes effectively and in an affordable, scalable manner. Our homes and are as unique as their occupant(s). One of the key difficulties of improving the energy efficiency of your home is that, as for many other areas, one size does not fit all.


Part of our Climate Action Programme, join us to see what the current solutions will reduce carbon emissions in order to meet the Government’s 2050 Carbon Zero targets and the 11th UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:
