Engie has launched its Engie Zero retrofit scheme designed as a one-stop-shop to decentralise, digitalise and decarbonise homes. The scheme, whilst being designed as fabric first, also covers solutions such as solar PV and battery storage alongside mechanical ventilation, long-term maintenance and monitoring and what Engie has described as a low carbon heating and hot water solution. Smart technologies such as rapid electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints can also be included, Engie said, as well as grid balancing technologies. The company pointed to how the scheme utilises savings generated from the technologies alongside existing revenue streams and government incentives such as the Renewable Heat Incentive, Energy Companies Obligation and grid balancing agreements to help finance the upfront costs of the works.
