Engie has launched a new low carbon housing retrofit service, in a bid to help local authorities, housing associations and other housing providers decarbonise their stock in line with national, municipal and corporate net zero commitments. A range of retrofit solutions designed to help make homes greener and more energy efficient are being made available to Engie customers through the service, including solar PV and battery storage systems, fabric improvements to roof, walls and flooring, and low carbon heating and hot water solutions, the energy and facilities management firm announced yesterday. Moreover, a number of smart technologies, such as rapid EV charge points and grid balancing technologies are also on offer through the deal, it added. Engie said it had used its “extensive housing retrofit experience” – including working with Dutch energy efficient building upgrades approach Energiesprong – to develop the new suite of services, which it described as a “fabric first, one-stop shop to decentralise, digitalise and decarbonise homes”.
