Stew Horne, head of policy at Energy Saving Trust, will lead a workshop on clean heat at Inside Housing’s Retrofit Challenge Summit on 24 March 2022.
Alongside experts in the heat and energy sectors, Stew will be exploring solutions to solve the question: how can we accelerate the widespread adoption of heat pumps? The interactive session will explore practical and innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions when heating our homes.
Emissions from heating our homes accounts for around 21% of the UK’s annual carbon footprint. To reduce emissions and prevent catastrophic climate change, we must look for new ways to heat our homes and work towards net zero emissions by 2050. Heat pumps, which are powered by electricity, are an existing low carbon technology that can be installed in new builds and retrofitted into existing homes.
The Retrofit Challenge Summit, hosted by Inside Housing, is one of the most prominent events of the year addressing the UK’s retrofit challenge. This one-day event held in St Paul’s, London, invites leaders in government, housing association, government sector and supply chain to discuss current retrofitting projects, share ideas and collaborate to find solutions to one of the housing sector’s most urgent challenges.
The summit aims to discuss issues facing the sector at all stages from planning, procurement and funding to the delivery of retrofit projects at scale.
