Social housing: The sustainable heating solution
In this episode, (recorded on 25th June 2020) Max Halliwell from Ecodan talks to architect and Ecodan Ambassador, George Clarke. They discuss social housing in the UK, 'affordable warmth', and the need to educate the entire sector, from government, developers, housing associations, and residents about heat pump technology. They consider the case for new-build developments versus retrofitting the UK's existing social housing stock to be more sustainable and energy-efficient.
