Description

What: For anyone who would you like to improve the comfort of your home, reduce your carbon footprint or save money, the Retrofit Fair is designed to help, and will run from 9am to 3pm on Saturday 11th September in the forecourt of Stroud Subscription Rooms. We will be showcasing a number of aspects of retrofit to help develop awareness and demystify the topic. If you haven’t heard the term before, retrofit refers to any measures that will reduce the carbon emissions of a building while maintaining good levels of comfort and reducing energy bills.

How: There will be a number of stalls on different topics. At the centre of the fair will be a model house along with experts on fabric related retrofit to share knowledge on heat loss assessments, insulation, avoiding damp issues, etc. Additional stands will cover heat pumps, solar, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery and more.  There will also be advice for those seeking help with funding and needing to access grants, plus information on what is happening in the Stroud district to address domestic retrofit and heating. Additionally you’ll have the chance to find out about training and retraining opportunities in Retrofit at Stroud College.  And that’s not all, in the George Room there will be stalls from local groups, where you can find out about climate change initiatives including how to convert your bicycle into an e-bike and plans for tree planting in the area.

Direct Carbon Saving: 190,000 kgCO2e/yr
