Warmer Sussex

Warmer Sussex logoRetrofitWorks has partnered with a range of local community organisations to secure Government funding to build a local market to transform the housing stock of Sussex. Warmer Sussex launched in October 2019 and is is an alliance of expert advocates, advisers, designers and contractors that have worked for many years.  Together we are seeking to make homes more comfortable, cheaper to run and less impactful on the planet.

Warmer Homes, for the Greater London Authority

This was initially a £2.5m grant scheme that was augmented to £4.6m following its ongoing success.

Up to £4,000 worth of home improvements were available per eligible household in any London Borough.  A range of appropriate measures were installed to improve energy performance and internal living conditions, particularly air quality.

All surveys and installations were managed by RetrofitWorks, with Retrofit Coordinators leading on judging suitability of measures for each home and the successful implementation.

Additional funds per household were also accessed through ECO funding.

The scheme is currently closed.

Developing Schemes

EcoFurb   (launch early 2020)

Government funding has been awarded to Parity Projects (Advocate Member) to develop a self-sustaining retrofit market for the able-to-pay sector.

Homes as Energy Systems (HAES) – ERDF Project, Manchester  (December 2019)

RetrofitWorks is a partner in a ground-breaking project to show how to get our existing homes to zero carbon by making them part of the energy system, so be able to generate an income to help pay for works to radically reduce their energy use.

We are going to spend £1 million on 20 private homes across Greater Manchester to see how far that will get them to zero net energy use and carbon emissions. More details available here
