Towns and cities work together on home retrofit with Accelerator Cities

The Active Building Centre is part of Accelerator Cities led by the UK Green Building Council


Change in demand

The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has today marked a major new phase of Accelerator Cities, a project which brings together some of the most ambitious local and combined authorities and other expert stakeholders to drive action to upgrade our draughty, energy-hungry housing stock.

Only early action by communities, public authorities and local leaders will bring forward the new and better options people need for their home upgrade.  There’s a growing range of technologies and integrated energy systems that allow energy capture, storage, management and use (not least for their EV) that the future demands.

The Active Building Centre will be working to help ensure these technologies work well, work well together, and work well for the benefit of the householder and the local energy system too.
