A groundbreaking project that gives a unique insight into how the Green Deal might work in social housing

FutureFit is Affinity Sutton’s response to exploring the challenge of greening the 56,000 homes we own and manage. We are working with 102 homes and many more residents around the country to deliver combinations of retrofit works and lifestyle advice. Rather than undertaking a pilot project led by the 80% carbon reduction target, we aim to investigate the practicalities involved and what energy savings can actually be achieved at three different price points.
In this way, FutureFit will provide us with an insight into how the Green Deal might work in reality.

FutureFit aims to:

  1. Understand the practical implications of delivering large scale programmes of retrofit.
  2. Identify actual costs and actual energy savings through a robust monitoring and evaluation process.
  3. Develop best practice and guidance on the delivery and funding of carbon reduction in existing homes.
  4. Engage residents and stakeholders in the design, evaluation and prioritisation of retrofit solutions.
