There’s an important role for community-led retrofit activity in our journey to net zero.
Whether it’s about explaining the options, identifying opportunities, audits or running events, community retrofit makes places better for the people using them while also reducing carbon emissions.
Retrofit is about planning and making improvements to buildings to improve energy efficiency.
It can mean anything from basic repair and maintenance, to draught-proofing and insulation, to heat recovery or renewable energy technology.
CSE already does a lot of work in this area. We have a whole retrofit team! But outside the formal retrofit sphere of accredited assessors, installers or co-ordinators, people embedded in their local communities have an important role to play.
Our retrofit tools, resources and case studies help with local conversations and connecting people; flagging key considerations and highlighting funding; setting up local projects and finding the right information.
