First project

Housing organisation Nottingham City Homes chose nine houses in the UK to transform to the Energiesprong standard. The houses are part of a larger renovation project with low energy standards. These nine houses will be called ‘2050 Houses’ and will have the highest energy standard. The name refers to the ambition that in 2050 all buildings in the UK are low to zero carbon buildings. The nine houses are the pilot project. If all goes well and financing is possible, which depends on funding, another 200 to 300 houses of the same type will be renovated.

Read the interview with Emily Braham, head of sustainable energy at Nottingham City Homes, about the challenges the housing association is facing.

Stage: In Q2 2017, the first nine houses will get a retrofit.

Four other housing associations in the UK are currently preparing their call for tender.
