Retrofit in London The GLA’s Energy Efficiency strategy April 2013 Jake Ronay
Overview 1.The Mayor’s carbon targets 2.Retrofit programmes overview 3.Progress to date 4.Future strategy
The Mayor’s carbon commitments: Why retrofit is important 2025 carbon plan: Reduce London’s CO 2 emissions by 60% of 1990 levels by 2025 Building emissions account for 78% of London’s emissions. 80% of London’s buildings will still be standing by A strong retrofit programme is key to delivering the Mayor’s targets – retrofit will account for 40% of reductions by 2025.
Meeting our targets: The Mayor’s role The Mayor and GLA have a unique position to: Lead: Set targets, demonstrate best practice in GLA family Influence: Work with central and local government to remove barriers Work with stakeholders and partners to deliver at scale Enable: Leverage revenue costs to bring in investment Promote retrofit to create project pipelines Evidence from programmes to date shows that retrofit activity does not happen at scale without some form of central direction. Boroughs Supply chain GLA family Public sector Private landlords Energy suppliers London residents Government (DECC, Ofgem) Commercial sector Social landlords London Councils GLA Enable Influence GLA estate Lead
Domestic sector: RE:NEW 67,000 homes to date, 26,000 in 12/13. Strong brand, trusted by residents – 10x improved take-up rate. Has driven approx 30% of retrofit activity in London. But – only 5% of UK delivery vs 12% housing share to date. Area-based approach and door-to-door strategy can be resource intensive. Strategic review of delivery in progress to identify best way to deliver at scale in each housing sector. A long-term approach with secure funding is needed to meet targets.
Procurement and delivery through RE:FIT framework Guaranteed savings Set up building survey Delivered 111 buildings so far in pipeline. 20% average energy saving. Highly effective, low-cost delivery model. High level of take up with public sector organisations. Resource efficient: 25x leverage. So far has only been used on large buildings and estates – model can be applied to SMEs and domestic programmes. Opportunity exists to over-deliver. But - Approach to date has been opportunistic. A sector-based approach will be needed to meet long-term target. The RE:FIT approach Public sector workplaces: RE:FIT InsulationBuilding management technologies Cooling equipment Low carbon heating
Landlord-focused, working to reduce emissions from workplaces. In partnership with the GLA for three years. Saved over 30,000 tonnes of CO2 by working with membership. Working groups on: Green Leases Owner Occupier Partnerships Sustainability Benchmarks Property Agents Sustainable Retrofit Private sector retrofit: Better Buildings Partnership
Progress to date: A good start… Progress to date Domestic RE:NEW 1.2m homes2.4m homes2.9m homes93,000 homes by end 12/13. Major scaling-up of current programme needed to reach targets. Public sector workplaces RE:FIT 600 buildings 1.67m sq ft 6.7m sq ft11m sq ft111 buildings retrofitted buildings in pipeline. Commercial sector / BBP Tonnes CO2 tbc 25,000 SMEs Tonnes CO2 tbc 50,000 SMEs Tonnes CO2 tbc No data for most activity in the capital. Very small savings from BBP programmes. No programme for SMEs. Industry-leading programmes in public-sector and domestic retrofit. Little progress in commercial sector. Domestic retrofit will need scaling up to meet targets. Targets taken from Climate Change Mitigation and Environmental Strategy (CCMES) 2011
What next: Delivery at scale… Scale up now: immediate action needed to build on progress to date and deliver against targets. Sector-based approach: work with major landlords and estate owners to create economies of scale. Long-term planning: develop funding and resourcing to manage London-wide programme to Flexibility: each sector and programme needs a different approach. Adapt to changing funding and regulatory environments. Target private sector: particularly SMEs. Data-based analysis: ensure we deliver genuine sustainable emissions reduction. Technology adoption: How can the GLA stimulate innovation?
