The Retrofit Challenge & How Passivhaus could help



John Palmer, Research and Policy Director at Passivhaus Trust, sets the scale of the retrofit challenge into context and explains what is needed from retrofit to achieve net zero overall for our homes.

He covers the definition of net zero with respect to houses, shows the contribution of housing to UK emissions and what levels of energy efficiency will be needed in homes to contribute to net zero.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
