What is RE:FIT London?

RE:FIT is part of the Mayor's £34 million Energy for Londoners programme which aims to make London's homes warm, healthy and affordable, its workplaces more energy efficient, and to supply the capital with more local clean energy.

RE:FIT London is an award-winning and tried and tested programme used to help make London's non-domestic public buildings and assets more energy efficient.

The programme, established in 2009, not only reduces carbon emissions but also results in large guaranteed energy savings for the public sector (typically around 15-25 per cent). Find out more about what RE:FIT has achieved to date.

RE:FIT London helps a range of organisations including London boroughs, NHS bodies, central government departments, schools and other educational establishments, and cultural and heritage organisations to implement retrofit projects. It does this through:

How could RE:FIT help you?

RE:FIT was developed to overcome three key barriers that were preventing the retrofit of non-domestic public sector buildings from happening at the required rate and scale:

1. A lack of capacity and expertise to identify and get projects off the ground, including securing the most appropriate funding.

Solution: Free PDU services, including access to free training and project management support.

2. Long, complex and costly procurement processes.

Solution: Access to 16 pre-approved industry leading contractors through the RE:FIT framework.

3. Risks associated with investing money with no savings guarantees.

Solution: Using the framework and PDU services to put Energy Performance Contracts in place which guarantee savings.

Who is funding the programme?

RE:FIT London is jointly funded by the GLA and the European Union European Regional Development Fund until August 2019 and is helping to achieve the Mayor's aim for London to be a zero carbon city by 2050.
