‘How do we make homes zero carbon ready?’

Speakers: Marianne Heaslip, URBED, Julie Godfrey, Sustainability Consultant and CIBSE Technical Manager, John Palmer, Passivhaus Trust

Chair: Jonathan Atkinson

Description: Carbon Co-op has long talked about the need for ‘2050 Retrofits’, but what does it mean today to aim for a home fit for a ‘climate safe’ future? Is it an 80% cut in carbon emissions? A ‘net zero’ home? And why bother at all if we transition away from gas to electric only homes and the grid is completely decarbonised?

In this discussion we explore some of these terms and concepts and assess what they mean for the work Carbon Co-op does.

With the help of some experts in the field, we will think about what performance targets we should be using in the work we do, the targets members set for their home retrofits and how we use services like My Home Energy Planner and People Powered Retrofit to make them a reality.
