Net-zero housing refurbishment initiative secures significant funding

Building Energy Management Systems

A net-zero housing refurbishment initiative that will be channelled into both retrofit and new-build housing in the UK, France and the Netherlands has managed to secure €5.4m (£4.23m) of European funding.

The bid was undertaken by Energiesprong UK on behalf of all the project partners and a total of nearly €1.8 million (£1.4m) is allocated to three of the participating partners in the UK – Affinity Sutton, Moat Housing Group and the National Energy Foundation.

Energiesprong retrofits which include LED lighting, solar panels and upgraded insulation take no more than a week to install and come with a 30-year performance warranty. The improvement can be financed through the savings in energy costs.

The programme has already delivered more than 800 net-zero energy refurbishments and has started delivery on a further 111,000 as part of an agreement between housing associations and builders.

HeatingSave – the perfect energy efficiency system for retrofit projects

Energy management systems might represent a sizeable investment for any company, but the rapidly rising energy prices can actually deliver a very rapid return on investment, experts in the field have argued.

A recent paper on this topic has argued that over half of firms have appointed a senior director to manage energy spending and implement energy efficiency measures.

The range of energy saving programmes directors can vary largely, depending on the available funding, the company’s size, premises, site specifics.

However, regardless of the particular approach, directors who are serious about slashing their energy bills will need to consider retrofitting their premises in some way, whether we’re talking about putting in renewable energy measures or more complex Building Energy Management Systems.

An energy management and monitoring system can help companies stay on top of their energy usage and reduce their overall bills by running their light/heating systems in an optimum manner.
