The UK government has announced an ambitious programme to upgrade all our existing stock of 25 million homes by 2030, cutting at least 60%
off our energy bills. This would involve upgrading 25,000 homes a week! Yet we are very far from putting in place either the advice, the funding or the technical support that is needed to householders to achieve this.
At the same time, the UN Copenhagen Summit looms and the UK Government has committed itself to cutting energy in the immediate future, 20%
by 2020, and by more if other countries sign up. We know that energy saving in buildings will get us 50% of the way towards our target, and we know that energy saving in buildings is straightforward if only people know how.
These are the challenging topics we will be debating on the 8th December with leading government representatives, German experts, funding bodies and active practitioners. The workshop is supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Department for Energy and Climate Change, The Grantham Institute for Climate Change, the World Wildlife Fund, the Existing homes Alliance, the Higher Education Innovation Fund 4 and the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion.
