Council launches retrofitting campaign #OxfordNeedsNetZero

Oxford City Council has launched a new resource as part of a campaign to encourage residents to find out more about retrofitting their homes – #OxfordNeedsNetZero.

Retrofitting is the process of making changes to your property, such as installing heat pumps, solar panels, loft insulation, wall insulation, and more – all of which can help reduce your energy consumption and carbon emissions.  

The Zero Carbon Oxford Roadmap has found that around 60% of Oxford’s total carbon emissions come from buildings – and residential buildings makes up 25% of total emissions. Oxford has a goal to become a net-zero carbon city by 2040, and decarbonising buildings is key to this.  

To help residents find out more about the options that are available, the Council has created a dedicated webpage on retrofitting.
