What is retrofit?

So, what is retrofit? In simple terms, a retrofit is the process of modifying an existing building to improve its energy performance. This can encompass a wide range of upgrades.

Why is retrofit important?

Buildings are a major contributor to global energy consumption and carbon emissions. In fact, buildings are responsible for nearly 40% of global energy use and 36% of carbon emissions. Retrofitting existing buildings is a crucial strategy for reducing our environmental impact and achieving net zero emissions, a goal where we remove as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as we produce. By making our buildings more energy-efficient, we can significantly reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and create a more sustainable future.

What are the benefits?

Retrofitting your building offers a range of benefits for both your wallet and the environment. Here are some key advantages:

What are the types of building retrofit?

There are many different types of retrofits, each with its own specific goals. Here are a few examples:
