A guide to PAS 2035 retrofit evaluation

16 November 2021

PAS 2035 is the over-arching document in the retrofit standards framework which was introduced following the recommendations of the Each Home Counts review.

Why carry out retrofit evaluation?

04 November 2021

Retrofitting our existing buildings to reduce their energy usage and improve the quality of life for their occupants is a key area to target if the UK is to reach its target of net zero carbon by 2050, which was enshrined in law in 2019. In 2019, buildings accounted for 30% of the UK’s emissions, with 23% of this produced by heating buildings[1]. Building new homes to higher standards will be set out in the

Yesterday the world descended on Glasgow for the 26th Conference of the Parties, or COP26, as it’s known.

Heat pumps in existing buildings

22 October 2021

Context                                                      With the release of the government’s Net Zero Strategy in preparation for COP 26 in Glasgow, and the further release of the Heat and Buildings Strategy, addressing the factors driving our impact on the global climate is firmly back on the agenda after arguably taking a back-seat during the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking at UK emissions from 2019- a more representative year than 2020- buildings account for 30% of our emissions, with 23% of the

To achieve Net Zero we’ll need research and innovation

21 October 2021

Earlier this week the government released its long awaited Heat in Buildings Strategy. The document sets out the government’s plan to cut carbon emissions from the UK’s 30 million homes and workplaces. Heating the UK’s 30 million buildings contributes to almost a quarter of all UK emissions which is why the government is particularly focused on cutting emissions in this area. But what does this mean for buildings? And how can research and innovation help

Why are my bills so high?

21 September 2021

One of the top news stories of the past few days has been about struggling energy companies and soaring bills for households as a result of a surge in wholesale gas prices.  While the energy price cap protects consumers from a sudden increase in the amount they can be charged on a standard tariff, if the company they are with goes bust, they will automatically be switched to another provider- where they could face higher

SECR- What are Scopes 1, 2 and 3?

08 September 2021

Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) requires companies to report on their energy usage and the associated greenhouse gas emissions. These are divided into three Scopes, known as Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3.

How has COVID-19 affected SECR reporting?

02 September 2021

COVID-19 has led to changes in the way we work, with working from home becoming the norm for many of us. As we look to progress to more ‘normal’ times, it’s worth reflecting on the impacts it has had on SECR. What is SECR? SECR stands for Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting, and is a mandatory UK government framework that replaced the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme in April 2019. It was introduced
