Challenge / Goal

The City of Nottingham faced a number of interconnected critical challenges. The city hoped to achieve its climate change and fossil fuel emissions reduction targets. One of the largest impediments to reaching these goals was the high number of hard to heat homes, for which massive investment in retrofitting was required. At the same time, the city had notable levels of fuel poverty, which needed to be tackled.


Nottingham has become the first UK city to adopt the ground-breaking retrofitting housing solution, known as “Energiesprong”, pioneered in the Netherlands. Overall household energy demand will be greatly reduced and can mostly be generated on-site, via the smart use of renewable energy technologies. Environmental performance will be improved to almost net zero carbon.
