Low Carbon Homes Forums

With the recent rises in energy costs, climate emergency declarations and growing consumer awareness of the carbon impact of heating, now is the ideal time to discover proven methodologies and best-practice application of technology to improve domestic property energy efficiency, enhance the comfort and well-being of occupants, whilst helping the UK to meet our climate change ambitions.

Low Carbon Homes is a series of events, focused on retrofit, which in 2019 will be hosted in Dorset, Sussex, Suffolk and Manchester. Each event follows a similar collaborative model, encouraging and facilitating dialogue between our architect, engineer, landlord, surveyor, consultant, contractor and local authority attendees.

The free-to-attend programme covers the whole-house approach to retro-fitting aging housing stock – heat-loss, air-tightness, insulation, renewables, and system optimisation – equipping delegates with valuable insight to help dispel myths, and encourage take-up of low carbon solutions. Our host partners bring local context to the programme, making take-away actions highly topical, relevant and do-able.

As a delegate you’ll meet some interesting new contacts, hear a broad range of perspectives from complementary professions and you’ll leave the event better equipped to meet customer, climate change and fuel poverty challenges.

*FREE TO ATTEND for invited professionals

What is Low Carbon Homes?

Low Carbon Homes brings global domestic energy efficiency innovation to the UK’s regions via a nationwide event series – the Low Carbon Homes Forum.

Low Carbon Homes wants to drive the adoption of new energy saving standards by providing a unique platform. Here, professionals can share best practice and discover pioneering methodologies and products to help transform home efficiency, reduce fuel poverty and lower carbon emissions.

 

The UK's Challenges

Low Carbon Homes seeks to address 5 key challenges:

  1. Change: apathy and resistance to change – key influencers are unmotivated to recommend change; easier to ‘do nothing’
  2. Cost perceptions: unconvincing ROI
  3. Confusing/conflicting information: competing advice from experts
  4. Complexity: technological complications – pace of innovation difficult to keep up with
  5. Consistency: inconsistent government policies – financial incentives reducing with fluctuating priorities

Our Solution

We’ll provide success stories and case-studies in a forum-style community. Our events will be tailored to address regional issues and deliver solutions that are right for your area.

By facilitating knowledge exchange, peer-to-peer learning and debunking myths, we will reduce barriers and accelerate the take-up of energy efficiency best practice in your region.
