Our retrofit qualifications support the UK's need to become net-zero by 2050.

It’s estimated that 20% of UK greenhouse emissions come from housing. Over 200 local authorities have declared a climate emergency and tackling it means that action is urgently needed to retrofit better insulation and sustainable heating systems into the UK’s housing stock as a key part of the solution.

The first milestone is to bring all homes up to a minimum EPC Band C by 2030. Over 70% of the housing stock currently doesn’t meet this standard, including most of the 4 million social homes. By 2050 all homes are expected to be net carbon zero. At NOCN Group, all our products are affected by the sustainability net carbon zero agenda.

What is retrofit?

Retrofitting involves integrating new systems designed for high energy efficiency and low energy consumption into buildings constructed without them. From simple measures like energy-efficient light bulbs to cutting-edge heating systems, the benefits are clear: cost-effective buildings, reduced environmental impact, and increased property value due to higher energy ratings.

Sustainable retrofitting methods for domestic properties span a broad spectrum, including solar panels, smart meters, and sustainable water and heating systems. It's crucial to emphasize that the maintenance of these systems is as vital as their energy efficiency.

Contrary to common belief, retrofitting isn't exclusive to commercial buildings. The government's 'every home counts review' led to the introduction of PAS 2035, establishing a standard for retrofitting domestic properties. PAS 2035 empowers retrofit coordinators to take a holistic approach, ensuring not only the type of work carried out but also its adherence to acceptable standards. Accredited retrofit assessors play a crucial role in evaluating this work.
