Delivering housing retrofit at scale is to be debated at a dedicated social housing conference on 31st October, sponsored by the Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP).

The ‘Social Housing’ module within Retro Expo’s Green Deal Summit will take place on 31 October at the Birmingham NEC and will examine the implications of engaging in the Green Deal and ECO. SHAP will also be launching their Report for 2012 which brings together the outcomes of several task and finish groups who have been working to provide evidence on how the objectives of the Community Green Deal framework , developed by SHAP in 2010, can be delivered in practice.

SHAP Chairman Alan Yates said ”This report will be of considerable interest to anyone wishing to actively engage in Green Deal, ECO or Retrofit. With contributions from active participants in key sectors the report will provide real insight into the opportunities and challenges of the £17 billion per annum retrofit market.”

Speakers include Paul Sutton from SHAP, Cliff Horrocks from Walsall Housing Group and Richard Baines from Black Country Housing Group, who will present up to the minute findings for Green Deal and ECO outlining different models for engagement - Provider, Partner, Participant or Passive player.

The scale and scope required to meet the demands of the Green Deal and ECO market and what decentralised energy generation will mean for housing stock will also be debated by Pat Laughlin, from Midlands Environmental Business Company, Paul Davies from Wates Living Space, Paul Dockerill from Inex, Graham Eastwick from ENCRAFT and Jim Allen from Green Energy Networks.

The wider Green Deal Summit is the definitive conference on this flagship policy. Bringing together leaders from across the value chain, from clients to installers, the seven modules of the Summit will address key issues including finance, generating demand, ensuring high standards of workmanship and achieving affordable technological solutions.
