Newark Home Cuts Energy Used For Heating by More Than 90%

A home in Newark, Nottinghamshire that was retrofitted in 2010/11 as part of a Government-funded project is now using just 9% of the energy it previously used for space and water heating. Overall energy use has been reduced by 75%, with the carbon emissions from the remaining use offset by a cost-effective investment in off-site renewables. The home is using 47% less energy than official figures predicted it would post-retrofit.
The work was carried out by Hockerton Housing Project who have written a short blog on how the home is still using a lot less energy seven years later:
