Ireland's National Deep Retrofit conference, taking place on Thursday 14th June, will focus on the insights and experiences gained from the first year of the deep retrofit pilot programme.
Deep Retrofit - Challenges and Opportunities
The deep retrofitting of Ireland’s building stock is recognised as one of our biggest energy efficiency challenges. It is also viewed by many as a major economic and employment opportunity. The conference functions as an annual review and information sharing platform across all stakeholder groups as to best practice and innovation, research findings and delivery of deep retrofit in Ireland across all demographics, geographic areas, technologies and building types.
Delighted to welcome a great line up of expert speakers for the day. With a great blend of both home and international experience, speakers will provide insights on completing a deep retrofit, the value proposition and ideas for tackling some of the challenges.Learn more
