Retrofit Accelerator - Workplaces 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.
Buildings are responsible for about 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint. We need urgent action to meet zero carbon emission targets.
Retrofit Accelerator - Workplaces (also referred to as RE:FIT) is an award-winning and tried and tested programme used to help make London's non-domestic public buildings and assets more energy efficient, lowering emissions and saving public money on energy spending.
The programme, established in 2009, not only reduces carbon emissions but also results in large guaranteed energy savings for the public sector
The Accelerator 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:
- the RE:FIT London Programme Delivery Unit, an expert team providing free end-to-end support needed to get projects up, running and successfully implemented
- the easy to use RE:FIT framework of energy service companies, which saves time and resources for organisations that are procuring retrofit services and works which - as an energy performance contracting framework - guarantees energy and cost savings
