A new pilot project for retrofitting energy efficiency measures and achieve zero-carbon status for existing homes has been launched in Essex by Moat Homes Limited and ENGIE.
The pilot scheme in the town of Maldon is based on the Energiesprong model and is supported by EU funding.
Moat Homes Limited has appointed ENGIE to provide energy efficiency improvements to five existing houses, with the aim of reducing fuel poverty and improving the health of residents.
The long-term aim is for the properties to become fully self-sufficient – they will achieve this through a range of new green features, such as roof-mounted solar panels, battery storage, special wall panels to to make the properties air tight, energy efficient pitched roofs and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) units for heat and ventilation.
The final energy performance for each property is expected to be near net carbon zero.
