People are increasingly talking about home retrofit – retrospectively fitting energy saving improvements to a home – as a way to help the UK meet its climate targets and fix our incredibly cold, damp and unhealthy homes!
In this talk, Jonathan Atkinson of the Carbon Co-op and People Powered Retrofit outlines the background behind retrofit: separately space heating demand from a U value and helping to answer the eternal questions: what is a heat pump and how does it work??
Jonathan Atkinson is an Environmental Scientist with a background in co-operatives and environmental action who is one of the co-founders of the Manchester-based Carbon Co-op. Carbon Co-op is a unique social enterprise that helps people and communities to make the radical carbon savings required to tackle climate change!
