Addressing the market barriers to large-scale zero carbon retrofits through the creation of a self-sustaining economy of inter-agent collaboration

The UK building sector is responsible for around 40% of all UK carbon emissions, and it is therefore vital that improvements are made in the energy efficiency of UK housing stock in order to address fuel poverty, and ensure that the targets laid out in the Climate Change Act 2008 are met. My research will explore how the economic barriers to zero carbon retrofit can be lowered by utilising a community-led approach using complementary currencies. Working alongside Localise West Midlands and the Birmingham Pound project, I hope to produce a viable solution to the issues being faced
