|This project looked at designing a supply chain solution to improve the energy efficiency of the vast majority of the 26 million UK homes which will still be in use by 2050.It looked to identify ways in which the refurbishment and retrofitting of existing residential properties can be accelerated by industrialising the processes of design, supply and implementation, while stimulating demand from householders by exploiting additional opportunities that come with extensive building refurbishment.The project developed a top-to-bottom process, using a method of analysing the most cost-effective package of measures suitable for a particular property, through to how these will be installed with the minimum disruption to the householder. This includes identifying the skills required of the people on the ground as well as the optimum material distribution networks to supply them with exactly what is required and when.
This deliverable is number 4 of 7 in Work Package 3. The report outlines actions necessary to roll out mass scale retrofit of the UK housing stock from 2012 to 2050, based on the findings of the project. The report proposes this period be structured into 3 phases:
The report is intended as an overview document that can be used to plan the mass rollout of retrofit in the UK. It is also meant to flag potential obstacles and areas of opportunity which should be considered when developing the strategy for mass implementation of retrofit. It is recommended this report is read in conjunction with deliverable WP4.5 ? Change Management Road Map.
- 1) Preparation to 2020
- 2) Retrofit rollout 2020 to 2030
- 3) Future scenarios 2030 to 2050.
