The Technology Strategy Board will be showcasing the Retrofit for the Future programme throughout RetroExpo at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham from 31st October to 1st November (

Array The objective of the programme is to demonstrate that cuts of 80% or more can be made in the energy demand and carbon emissions associated with the UK housing stock. It also aims to showcase the materials, components, technologies and processes that are involved in achieving this level of reduction. The programme is focused on the social housing sector but it is expected to deliver lessons for the entire UK housing stock.

The Technology Strategy Board’s stand (C20) will provide an overview of the programme highlighting a number of the 86 projects and displaying some of the technologies used to achieve the high standards of energy and environmental performance. Visitors will be able to preview the EMBED database which is now being populated with data and reports from the programme and will be opened for general access in 2013.

Presentations of many Retrofit for the Future projects will be given in the four seminar hubs:
  • Stream A - Building Fabric Retrofit Masterclasses - How To Save Energy Through Fabric Improvements
