Nottingham social housing landlord Nottingham City Homes is offering free places on its ERDF-funded collaborative workshop aimed at SMEs in the construction, property maintenance and energy industries.

The workshop takes place over two days and offers delegates an insight into the Energiesprong retrofitting housing solution.

Nottingham City Homes was the first housing organisation in the UK to adopt Energiesprong, knowing that the UK has among the highest rates of fuel poverty and one of the most energy inefficient housing stocks in Europe.

The Energiesprong approach, pioneered in the Netherlands, upgrades a home with a manufacturing solution that includes new outside walls and windows, a solar roof and a state of the art heating system, all installed in a matter of days.  The aim is to generate as much energy as the homes need – making them almost zero net energy.

The workshop is and will be of interest to organisations who are or could be main contractors, designers, architects, product suppliers or installers of energy efficiency, renewable energy or construction materials, controls or services. It focuses on taking a fresh approach to ways you can grow business with new and innovative ideas and is a great opportunity for SMEs to meet and network with other businesses on the same journey.
