Retrofit

Decarbonisation of 5 million social housing properties in the UK is needed by 2050. Resolution Energy has experience of supporting both Local Authorities and Housing Associations with the development of their ‘Net-Zero’ strategies.

We can help with

Understanding your stock carbon emissions and EPC ratings

Energy modelling for retrofit scenarios

Decarbonisation strategies

Options for low carbon heating systems

Balanced Strategy

We believe that any strategy to decarbonise homes should carefully balance:​

A fabric first approach to reduce energy demand

A switch to proven low carbon technologies

Measures tailored to the needs of the resident, not just the property

Solutions that are affordable to run, easy to operate and low maintenance

Tried and Tested Approach

We have developed a tried and tested approach to help Landlords on their journey towards ‘net zero’.

 

Our process can be applied at a stock wide level, for an individual estate, or for a target group of properties such as those with an EPC rating below C.

 Decarbonisation Strategy Report

Our approach is founded on:

  • Energy modelling based on the UK Government national calculation methodology for assessing the energy performance of dwellings.

  • The best practice principles set out in the key industry standard PAS 2035: Retrofitting dwellings for improved energy efficiency.

  • Experience of working with residents and carrying out post occupancy evaluation

Testimonial

'Resolution Energy have recently provided Railway Housing Association with advice and support in developing our decarbonisation strategy. Claire provided a thoroughly professional service which included modelling the associations stock, providing options and costings for improving EPC ratings, identifying the priorities for investments and developing our strategy for the move to net zero by 2050.

Claire has a sound knowledge of the issues facing housing organisations facing the net zero challenge and enabled us to initially identify our baseline provision with advice on how to move forward.

I would recommend Resolution Energy to other housing providers embarking on their journey to net zero.'
