What is RE:NEW?
Helping to make London’s homes more energy efficient
RE:NEW is the award-winning programme to help make London’s homes more energy efficient.
The aim of the RE:NEW programme is to reduce carbon emissions and energy bills in London’s homes. These account for around 36 per cent of the capital’s total carbon footprint. RE:NEW helps organisations such as London boroughs, housing associations, and universities to implement retrofit projects and alleviate fuel poverty. It is doing this through:
- the RE:NEW Support Team, an expert team providing the end to end support needed to get projects up, running and successfully implemented
- the RE:NEW framework of suppliers, which saves time and resources for organisations that are procuring retrofit services and works
RE:NEW is helping to achieve the ambitious target for London to be a zero carbon city by 2050.
Established in 2009, RE:NEW has helped improve over 127,514 of London’s homes, saving around 46,178 tonnes of CO2 a year. Coupled with wider market delivery, over the lifetime of the programme over 593,000 homes in London have been retrofitted, through the programme directly and/or through receipt of the main subsidies.
