Low Carbon Homes Glasgow Retrofit Event

Low Carbon Home’s second retrofit conference will draw on the soon-to-be-published city-region retrofit feasibility study which considers how best to improve 428,000 homes across the region.

Our first Low Carbon Homes event in Scotland – hosted by Glasgow City Council – concluded that there are huge commercial opportunities around retrofit in Glasgow in the run up to the COP26 Conference later this year, as well as many socio-economic ‘co-benefits’ for householders.While the technology is available to scale up retrofit, our expert panel said, the city needs to see more innovation and collaboration between government, industry and training providers to realise Glasgow’s aspiration of carbon neutrality by 2030 – particularly on retrofitting the city’s iconic tenement blocks.

Businesses, public sector leaders and training providers at Low Carbon Homes’ online Glasgow retrofit conference highlighted enormous commercial, environmental, public health and socio-economic benefits of retrofitting homes in the city region. Glasgow City Council has set an ambitious target for the city to become carbon neutral by 2030, which would make it the UK’s first carbon neutral city.
