Fusion21 will be speaking at North West Retrofit Roadshow

Don’t miss the Retrofit Roadshow taking place at the ACC Liverpool on 3 September. The Roadshow is a must for organisations looking to develop retrofit strategies; access the key players; capitalise on local retrofit opportunities; learn from best practice and see the latest innovations.

 The government has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 and to achieve this ambitious target we need to retrofit 700,000 properties a year - that's 13,000 per week!

 Retrofitting is upgrading existing buildings with energy efficiency or renewable measures in order to reduce the amount of carbon emitted.  The Liverpool city region retro-fit market alone is estimated to be in the region of £50bn and five months after the launch of the Green Deal the North West is leading the way as the region with the most Green Deal assessments.

 This is probably due to our many pioneering initiatives. Project Viridis is a great example where a consortium of social landlords have signed up to a programme of work which will retrofit 100,000 houses in Liverpool.  Alliance is the UK’s largest procurement initiative for social landlords with over 1,170 members. Set up by Fusion21, Procurement For Housing & Northern Housing Consortium they have instigated solar, insulation and heating agreements that have delivered extensive home improvements, created jobs and saved ££s off householder bills.  Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub (part of AGMA) is also looking to deliver a range of low carbon projects that will provide several opportunities for low carbon suppliers in the region.

 Fusion21 will be speaking at Retrofit Roadshow  in partnership with the University of Salford to discuss how we can engage with the domestic Retrofit Customer.
