OxFoE and climate action: Towards Affordable and Accessible Retrofit
At the group meeting in June 2021 Oxford FoE agreed to focus on how we help accelerate work on retrofitting of existing buildings’. We agreed our aim of helping deliver ‘Affordable and Accessible’ retrofit (that is is desirable, and simple and not scary).
We need a clear and ‘net-zero consistent’ approach to retrofit. Action needs to happen at every level – national through county to community. We have agreed a way forward – download our first action plan here: https://www.oxfoe.co.uk/oxfoe-retrofit-next-steps/
We have set up a working group (July 2021) and are starting and work on research side and engagement. Can you help with this?
There is a Word version of the very useful Construction Leadership Council ‘National Retrofit Strategy’ here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UTKagVm78Tk1VEX6sYaFMfcrXCsfAXE9/view?usp=sharing
The Association for Decentralised Energy has a very relevant paper (which focuses more on Local Area Energy Plans): https://www.theade.co.uk/resources/publications/getting-retrofit-for-net-zero-an-approach-for-existing-homes
