Where: Seminar room 505, Buchanan House, 58 Port Dundas Road, Glasgow G4 0HG
Times: 12.30 -14.00 [GMT] (12:00 for lunch)

This webinar explores the development of a retrofit analysis tool by Changeworks, in partnership with the Urban Energy Research Group in the School of Built Environment at Heriot-Watt University, and with support through CIC Start Online funding.  The tool is designed to inform future decision making strategies to target hard-to-treat housing, so that energy efficiency standards, climate change targets and fuel poverty can be addressed cost effectively.  Unlike other tools this allows the input of actual data rather than generic dimensional data to provide accurate savings and costs for measures such as solid wall insulation.

CIC Start funding helped with improving functionality, levels of analysis and better graphical outputs.  The tool is now able to provide a clear understanding of costs and benefits related to different strategies for achieving the client’s outcomes.  Detailed analysis can be undertaken for a range of property refurbishment options to determine impact on fuel poverty, carbon reduction, capital budgets and compliance with minimum standards such as current and future Scottish Housing Quality Standards.

A second round of CIC Start funding has been secured to develop variability and Green Deal modelling capabilities.
