Bridging the North-South Divide in Home Retrofits: How Euro Energy Group is Leading the Charge

Understanding the North-South Retrofit Divide

A recent study by the Powering Net Zero (PNZ) Group has highlighted a troubling disparity in home retrofit progress between northern and southern regions of England and Wales. Homes in the North-east, North-west, and Yorkshire and the Humber are significantly behind their southern counterparts in improving energy efficiency. This gap poses a threat to achieving nationwide energy efficiency goals and calls for urgent action to ensure all regions can keep pace.

Key Findings from the Study

  • Progress Gaps: Northern regions lag behind in retrofitting efforts compared to the South.
  • Impact on Carbon Emissions: Slower progress in the North hampers overall efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
  • ECO4 Scheme: The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) scheme, running until 2026, provides a critical opportunity to address these gaps.

The Role of ECO4

The ECO4 scheme offers a vital window to implement energy efficiency measures across all regions. By focusing efforts on underperforming areas, we can ensure a more equitable distribution of benefits and contribute to national carbon reduction goals.
