The Retrofit Incentives Task Group was convened in 2012 to develop proposals for a financial incentive which could encourage the take-up of domestic energy efficiency measures. A range of potential incentives were investigated to identify three which could be developed further and form the basis of recommendations.
Following a process of assessing the options, the group agreed on three of the most promising incentives – variable Stamp Duty, variable Council Tax and an Energy Efficiency Feed-in-Tariff. Proposals were developed around these three incentives and economic modelling commissioned to understand their potential impacts on the retrofit market.

The Accelerator Cities Pathfinder project brings together some of the UK’s most ambitious city authorities and other expert stakeholders to catalyse action on home-retrofit. The project is part of the Climate-KIC Pathfinder programme and will be delivered by UKGBC.
UKGBC is hosting material on Innovate UK's Retrofit for the Future project, which set out with the ambition of reducing carbon emissions by 80% in a range of properties.
UKGBC is hosting the project reports and outputs plus a wide range of other material on climate adaptation from the Design for Future Climate competition, run by Innovate UK from 2010 through to 2014.
