No one in social housing questions the need to retrofit old housing stock to meet today’s carbon reduction requirements and net zero goals. Efficient low carbon energy solutions can also lower energy bills, cut emissions and improve residents' comfort, safety and well being.

The real question is how?

Finding space for the hot water storage needed for renewable heating systems is just one of the challenges social landlords face.

So what are the best practice zero carbon strategies emerging for the social housing sector?

Retrofit to decarbonise

High-rise apartments, Sunderland

Her at the Core 364 project, the thermal battery and heat pump bomination cut C02 emissions by an estimated 420 tonnes per year = or nearly 70% – by enabeling gas supplies to be removed from 364 homes.

Our proven approach to retrofits in high occupancy social housing

Tackle fule poverty

Retirement homes, Midlothian, Scoltland

the HeatShare projet shows how elderly residents use less energy for hot water with thermal batteries in their homes as part of five micro-scale district heating networks.

We work with low carbon energy partners and social landlords to deliver award winning renewable energy systems into hundreds of high occupancy buildings and new builds.

Our super-compact thermal storage has been developed to address the unique and disparate needs that characterise social housing in the UK today.
