What is Retrofit?

Retrofitting is the process of making changes to an existing building to reduce energy consumption and emissions.

Retrofit should also bring the benefit of a more comfortable and healthier home. Examples of retrofit measures include the installation loft or wall insulation, double or triple glazing.

Why Retrofit?

We need to upgrade Somerset’s housing stock. Our homes use a third of all energy in the UK and emit a fifth of carbon dioxide emissions. The government has committed to reaching net zero in carbon emissions by 2050, with a target of reducing emissions by 78% by 2035. 


To have any chance of reaching these targets we must look to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. With Somerset having a larger proportion of homes with an EPC rating of E or lower, there is a lot of work to do!

The project aimed to develop the supply chain for low carbon, whole house retrofitting of homes in Somerset through:
