A half-day conference on thermal efficiency for period and listed properties in the 21st Century.

Why do we need a retrofit revolution?

This UK government’s commitment to make all homes carbon neutral by 2035, along with minimum energy efficiency standards for rented properties and the rising costs of fuel, all pose challenges for owners of listed and period properties which fall below the required energy rating.

Owners and managers of period properties and estates are advised to work ahead to realise immediate and future gains in value and yields.
