On 14th November 2018, Manchester City Council adopted new science-based climate change targets on behalf of the city to become zero carbon by 2038. The Playing Our Full Part document confirmed that – for domestic property – this would involve reducing energy demand and shifting to lower carbon heat sources, lifting families out of fuel poverty and saving residents money on their energy bills, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
A year later to the day, Cogent Events opened the doors to the North West edition of Low Carbon Homes. Working with Manchester City Council, Manchester Climate Change Agency and wider stakeholders, the event’s programme was curated to ensure that speakers and delegates at the 14th November event tackled the particular challenges of retrofitting existing housing stock, and helped develop the Zero Carbon Framework 2020-38, and the city’s emerging Zero Carbon Housing Strategy.
