National Retrofit Plan

The National Retrofit Plan is the Government’s Plan to ensure that our national retrofit targets are met. The targets are to retrofit 500,000 homes to a Building Energy Rating of B2 or equivalent and to install 400,000 heat pumps to replace older, less efficient heating systems by the end of 2030. This will lower the greenhouse gases that come from our homes while also making them warmer, more comfortable and healthier.

(See Retrofitting)

The Plan was published in November 2021 as part of the Climate Action Plan 2021.
