Why Low Carbon Homes?

Tackling the energy efficiency challenge
Bringing local communities together
Sharing best-practice, fostering collaboration

Domestic property energy consumption equates to 14% of UK carbon emissions.

Low Carbon Homes exists to reduce this impact and highlight the wider social and economic benefits of retrofitting existing housing. We are a nationwide market-led membership platform for professionals and suppliers to learn, share and showcase best-practice. We aim to unpack the complexities of retrofit-at-scale, reduce confusion and promote action.

Unlike centrally-funded programmes, the agenda for Low Carbon Homes is set collaboratively by regional stakeholders – connecting all involved.

Our independent approach results in community-led retrofit action plans that support zero-carbon ambitions, reduce fuel poverty and stimulate local low-carbon economies.

The UK Government has declared a climate emergency, along with more than two-thirds of the UK’s 408 principal local authorities. A national target of achieving net zero carbon by 2050 has now been enshrined in law, with many local authorities setting the date event earlier. In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Low Carbon Homes regional events programme moved online and will stay online for the foreseeable future. We’ve retained many of the highly valued elements of the in-person events, such as the strong regional programme, targeted professional audience and networking, while introducing many dynamic new elements such as interactive floorplans, group/table video meetings, one-to-one’s, table whiteboard, and personal profiles.
