The online retrofit conference Low Carbon Homes Liverpool goes live from Tuesday, January 19, for three days of knowledge-sharing to consider how Liverpool can rapidly scale up the retrofitting of housing across the city to meet its net-zero target.

Liverpool City Council plans to make the city carbon neutral by 2030, creating more energy-efficient housing stock, increasing the amount of green space in the city area, and improving air quality. Its aims include incentives for the private sector to build more energy-efficient housing, retrofitting 6,000 homes with energy-saving features such as triple glazing, heat pumps and solar panels; and financial incentives for homeowners, including discounted green mortgages.

Three mornings of presentations and debate have been specifically curated with the assistance of LJMU, Liverpool City Council and an Advisory Board of local stakeholders:

Low Carbon Homes on 19-21 January, hosted by Liverpool John Moores University, is a free-to-attend online event bringing professionals from inter-related sectors together to collaborate and consider the scale of the challenge, the solutions available and the barriers to overcome.

After Liverpool, Low Carbon Homes will be staging further events across the UK.  Next is Kent (26-28 January), followed by Oxfordshire, Manchester and Portsmouth.
