People Powered Retrofit

We're working with Carbon Co-op in this BEIS funded project to develop local supply chains for whole house retrofit across Greater Manchester. This is one of six pilot projects in England. It aims to develop localised capacity to deliver retrofit works and inform future government policy and approaches.

Led by Carbon Co-op and URBED, the partnership includes Arc4, Cumbria Action for Sustainability, Quantum Strategy and Technology, Fieldwork Studio and Shortwork along with Electricity North West, Ecology Building Society and Greater Manchester Green Growth

Together we'll be researching, developing and testing the potential for a new householder-led approach to domestic energy efficiency works in the owner-occupied and 'able to pay' sector. You can read more about it in a blog on the Carbon Co-op website here
