IMPROVING SIGNPOSTING AND SUPPORT
Historically retrofit action has been driven by the need to address affordable warmth challenges and by the national government grant schemes established in answer to these.
This is realising improvements to some of the most poorly energy performing homes in our area and is a service provision we are keen to protect in the face of rising costs and imported fossil fuel supplies. The beneficiaries of grants through this service tend to be tenants and other householders with financial and/or health difficulties because this is where national funding streams are directed.
Today’s challenges of cost of living and climate crisis require new services that provide support to a broader range of householders to that they can also improve their homes. We are building Retrofit Centre to support this need.
The Innovate to Renovate Partnership are rising to the challenges.
The UK’s green mortgage market is showing signs that it is ready for lift off. Encouraged by the innovation of peers in this space, banks and building societies in the UK are launching green mortgage products at an ever increasing rate.
Green Mortgage products come in a variety of different forms, but all aim to incentivise homeowners to invest in improving the energy efficiency of their properties.
