Wales Retrofit Roadshow
Don’t miss the Retrofit Roadshow taking place at City Hall in Cardiff on 17 September as all the retrofit leaders from across Wales will be there. The Roadshow – targeted at the supply chain, public sector and property owners – will explore how we can improve the energy efficiency of every home and business in the country.
The Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) predicts that around £1bn over the next decade is likely to be invested in improving the energy efficiency of Welsh homes. Already a series of dynamic retrofit initiatives have emerged most notably the Arbed Programme, which has seen £68 million spent on retrofitting 7500 domestic properties across the nation. Arbed will continue to fund 10-20 schemes per year up to 2015. Furthermore as the public sector accounts for around 60% of construction projects in Wales, WAG has launched a procurement strategy which aims to improve the way that public construction projects are procured in Wales.
The event will explore the domestic and non-domestic challenges and opportunities by addressing:
• The business case for retrofits
• How Wales is meeting the retrofit challenge
• Latest carbon reduction technology
• Funding mechanisms and legal issues
• Pilot scheme learning and innovation
• Delivery of retrofit activity at scale
• Skills and training
• Business opportunities for the Welsh supply chain
These one day events will be packed with presentations, workshops and retrofit clinics with time set aside to network, plus a comprehensive exhibition of retrofit technologies. Key note speakers include:
