Optimised Retrofit Programme

Last updated: 7 October 2021

In August 2020, the Government of Wales announced a new £9.5 million programme to reduce the carbon footprint of existing social housing in Wales, make energy bills more manageable for residents and provide new job and training opportunities.


The Optimised Retrofit Programme will support the piloting of innovative new solutions for retrofitting Wales' housing stock in up to 1000 existing homes owned by registered social housing landlords and councils. The technologies and skills deployed through this programme are intended to support the decarbonisation of homes by reducing carbon emissions from around 300,000 social and fuel poor homes across Wales.


The whole programme is expected to be worth £9.5 million over two years.
