Energiesprong UK shares progress and next steps at Savoy Place event

Taking place in the Maxwell Library from 13:30 – 17:00, the event was an opportunity for solutions providers, policy makers and landlords to discuss the latest innovations, hear about potential funding opportunities, celebrate recent successes and make plans to move forward together into the New Year.

The afternoon began with a welcome from IET Built Environment Panel Chair Blane Judd and an introduction from Energiesprong UK’s Ian Hutchcroft on its highlights to date so far and aims for 2019. Attendees then discovered why Nottingham City Homes decided to proceed with a scaled-up Energiesprong project of its own, as covered in the IET’s Scaling Up Retrofit 2050 report published last year.

At 15:00, delegates moved on to a ‘speed dating’ session, where they put their questions to experts on topics such as procurement, business models, innovation and reducing costs.

The afternoon concluded with a series of talks from some of the first UK solution providers to develop Energiesprong retrofits, as well as international component supplier Factory Zero.

2019 is expected to be a significant year for Energiesprong in the UK, as it moves from tens to hundreds of net-zero energy homes retrofitted. It says there are volume commitments from housing providers to bring thousands more homes to market, multiple solutions providers contracted and factories being built.
