Funding Partnership Working Project Management


This is a UK strategic paper which looks at the issue of how energy saving measures will be financed in the social housing sector. It briefly sets out the current – and planned – policy terrain for achieving emissions reductions in the sector.
It then goes on to outline the barriers and opportunities presented by this landscape, and sets out a number of strategic options for improving the financing of low carbon retrofit in social housing.
