About this event

This workshop will bring together a mix of experts and stakeholders from London government, universities and business, civil society, and community groups, to explore how London can achieve a just transition to net zero, with a focus on the urgent need to accelerate the retrofitting of London’s homes.

In this event, we will consider four key challenges that can benefit the retrofitting sector and policymakers to unlock retrofitting at scale. We have identified four key challenge topics:

  • Topic 1: Costs, benefits, and incentives for retrofit
  • Topic 2: Retrofit requirements, wellbeing, and appropriate technologies
  • Topic 3: Financing models for retrofit
  • Topic 4: Innovation and delivering retrofit at scale

We will the use the networks, analysis and insights generated by this workshop, as a basis for a more ambitious cross-sectoral programme of research, innovation, evaluation and policy development, to help get London’s existing homes to Net Zero by 2030.

This research is funded by ESRC, AHRC and Innovate UK.
