Retrofit supply chain invited to innovation masterclass

Businesses in Greater Manchester’s energy efficiency supply chain are being invited to the third Greater Manchester Retrofit Innovation Network event, to be held on November 12.

Businesses in Greater Manchester’s energy efficiency supply chain are being invited to the third Greater Manchester Retrofit Innovation Network event, to be held on November 12.

The Network, run by the University of Salford, was established to bring together experts in community engagement, retrofit design and supply chain development to support both top-down and bottom-up approaches to housing retrofit in Greater Manchester. 

It was formally launched at its first event on 24 September in Manchester Town Hall.

Workshop series

A series of follow-up workshops are planned before the end of the year, with each one focused on a different retrofit-related theme. 

The masterclass on 12 November – supported by the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE) – is a CPD training event that will explore and explain the range of funding mechanisms set up by the UK Government to encourage domestic retrofit, including:

Methods of calculating the funding available will be explained, and the event will also be a good opportunity to network with others working in a similar area and to catch up on the latest retrofit news, both locally and nationally.

Places are limited, so businesses interested in attending are being encouraged to register online in advance.
