The National Refurbishment Challenge• The United Kingdom has the oldest housing stock in the developed world.• 5.5 million households in the UK are ‘fuel poor’ (2009)• Our homes are responsible for 25% of UK CO2 emissions• 5 Million homes are pre 1919 (traditional) • 500,000 of these are listed buildings
    3. 3. The National Refurbishment Challenge• The number of homes refurbished should be 22m in England by 2050 - at least 80,000 / year in West Midlands• Skills deficit in sustainable refurbishment is well known• 8.4% unemployment rate (highest for 16 years) - 22.2% for 16 - 24 year olds• UK Government committed to reducing national CO2 emissions by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 (baseline 1990).• The state of the science on climate change indicates a dire and worsening situation.

    29. 29. ConclusionsRenewable technologies become increasingly relevant as:• Energy prices increase• Higher levels of carbon mitigation are sought• The full social cost of carbon is applied• 80 : 20 rule applies - hard to treat (historic) buildings • where impact of renewables is less than of fabric measures
    30. 30.
