Wise Up About Green Retrofit

Energy generation, distribution and use is changing radically. Today, renewable energy is cheaper than ever, whereas fossil-fuels are dangerous for climate change. Meanwhile, new technologies could radically re-shape our homes, workplaces and communities. ECOE therefore wants to improve people’s energy literacy. We want everybody to know about the changes that are coming so that no-one is left behind. So we are now running webinars to provide trustworthy information about the technologies and changes to come.

We held our second webinar from 7-8pm on Wednesday November 18 on Zoom – register here. It covered what retrofit is, how you get work done, and ECOE’s plan to offer a retrofit advice service. It also explored the impact of insulation on heat and moisture retention. We also looked at current low-carbon heating options, how they’re evolving, and the potential for pre-fabricated Energiesprong technologies. Watch if you need basic information, or if you have more advanced questions. Our speakers included:

Tara Bowers –ECOE
Alastair Mumford – Devon County Council/ECOE
Mark Howard – Regen

Rob Rickey – Rob Rickey Design
