Mark Weaver, Project Director for Retrofit at Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland
The UK’s housing stock is one of the poorest in Europe in terms of energy efficiency, so it is promising to see a growing desire from UK homeowners to improve the energy performance of their homes for years to come. Not only will measures such as double-glazing and insulation help people out of fuel poverty, they will improve the comfort levels in the home.
Saint-Gobain’s findings demonstrate the requirement for the construction industry to deliver comprehensive retrofit solutions to meet the growing demand, but long-term drivers that create a stable environment from government are needed to ensure this is possible, while raising awareness of the benefits of doing so.
