UK can learn from Nottingham Energiesprong Pilot

A powerful report Reducing UK Emissions – 2018 Progress Report to Parliament by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) says the UK can learn from Energiesprong whole-house retrofits including our first UK pilot in Nottingham. Transition Zero's article looks at some of the committee's concerns and shows how Energiesprong is tackling these head-on.

Energiesprong UK is adapting the Dutch approach for the UK and developing a volume market that can deliver net zero energy retrofit financed by energy and maintenance savings, without public subsidy. Formerly hard to heat homes are transformed into desirable, comfortable and affordable homes for everyone, for life. Net zero energy performance isn’t just expected – it is guaranteed for 30 years.
