How do we make homes zero carbon ready?

Carbon Co-op has long talked about the need for ‘2050 Retrofits’, but what does it mean today to aim for a home fit for a ‘climate safe’ future? Is it an 80% cut in carbon emissions? A ‘net zero’ home? And why bother at all if we transition away from gas to electric only homes and the grid is completely decarbonised?

In this discussion explore some of these terms and concepts and assess what they mean for the work Carbon Co-op does.

With the help of some experts in the field, we will think about what performance targets to be using, the targets set for home retrofits and how we use services like My Home Energy Planner and People Powered Retrofit to make them a reality.
