This collaborative workshop takes place over two days and offers delegates an insight into the Energiesprong model that is being rolled out by Nottingham City Homes.
Nottingham City Homes was the first housing organisation in the UK to adopt the ground-breaking approach to retrofitting housing solutions, known as Energiesprong.
Many of Britain’s homes need to improve their energy efficiency; studies show that the UK has among the highest rates of fuel poverty and one of the most energy inefficient housing stocks in Europe. Poorly heated homes have a knock on impact on health outcomes, and all that wasted energy impacts on our climate change ambitions.
The Energiesprong approach, pioneered in the Netherlands, upgrades a home with a manufacturing solution that includes new outside walls and windows, a solar roof and a state of the art heating system, all installed in a matter of days. The aim is to generate as much energy as the homes need – making them almost zero net energy. Works not only improve the homes’ energy performance, but also dramatically improve the look and feel of the neighbourhood. The model uses an innovative, whole life approach to finance, with the price of the works, equal to the expected planned maintenance costs and energy savings over a 30 year period.
The workshop is aimed at SMEs in the construction, property maintenance and energy industries and will be of interest to organisations who are or could be main contractors, designers, architects, product suppliers or installers of energy efficiency, renewable energy or construction materials, controls or services.
It focuses on taking a fresh approach to ways you can grow business with new and innovative ideas, and will explore:
- Understanding technical requirements
- Understanding the business model
- Accessing existing providers in the supply chain
- Understanding current and future opportunities, both locally and nationally
- Completing a business model canvas to map out your current business situation.
It also provides a great opportunity to meet and network with other businesses on the same journey.
The workshop runs across two days - Thursday 14 November, and a January date to be confirmed. Both days start at 9am and finish at 4pm. Lunch is provided.
Venue and other details will follow direct upon booking.
