How To Make Existing Homes Greener


The PDPLA are working with a  range of organisations including PCC and Green Tech South to understand inhibitors and help find solutions to the challenge of making existing housing stock carbon neutral.

The good news is that there will be a 3 session conference in March to help answer all of your questions and attendance is free to PDPLA members. The precise format and speakers are still being finalised but we recommend you book your place as soon as you can.

When Is It / Where Is It?

Low Carbon Homes run events across the country focussed on architects, engineers, contractors, landlords and surveyors aimed at helping attendees understand how and why they can 'green' their properties.

The Portsmouth event on March 16th-18th will be their 14th such event and will be spread over 3 days, with each session running from 9.30am until 11.30am 

What Can I Learn?

Apart from key note speakers there will be the chance to network with others and discuss options even though the conference is online, as attendees are grouped into 'tables' and people on each table can see and chat to each other during the appropriate sessions.

Obviously it is up to you to decide which elements of the conference are relevant to you, and final details will be released nearer the time, but at present, the focus of the event is to answer questions on how to finance retrofit,  what is involved in a deep retrofit and what needs to be considered where multi-tenure or cross-tenure households are involved (particularly relevant to landlords and tenants).

Main topics currently proposed are:

Day 1 – Scale of the challenge and progress so far

Day 2 – Options / Approaches available in Portsmouth

Day 3 – Barriers and inhibitors that need to be overcome
