The brief was that each of the low carbon refits of existing low-rise social housing would meet the UK government’s target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions of 80% by 2050, while also cutting energy use dramatically.\ud Programme applicants were asked to develop whole house retrofit solutions that would result in major cuts to CO₂emissions whilst also significantly improving energy performance. Applicants were required to take a ‘whole house’ approach, i.e. to consider a household’s energy needs and carbon dioxide impacts as a whole, and establish a comprehensive package of measures to reduce them.\ud The team set out to achieve a successful retrofit scheme which was innovative through an integrative, technologically\ud robust, holistic, people focused approach to achieve carbon savings rather than being seduced into a technological\ud short term quick 'quick fix'. The building used in the project was a 1980s urban semi-detached (end terrace) two bedroom, three person house in Newport, South Wales.
