Net Hero Podcast – retrofit homes fit for the future!

Can brownfield sites be transformed? Nottingham Council has done just that to showcase net zero in action. But does the economics of retrofitting stack up?

Big Zero Report 2023

The podcast this week investigates the cost benefit for retrofitting housing stock using new materials, as demonstrated by a unique housing project run by Nottingham Council.

They have transformed a row of leaky, damp and decrepit council houses into almost net zero homes, with new heating, solar, lighting and insulation. Is this the real trick for net zero ambition? Finding a way to fund such work is challenging but is it still cheaper than pulling down and rebuilding?

Listen in to my conversation with Sally Longford, Deputy Mayor, about the city’s work and its ambition to be net zero in six years!
