The University of Salford is hosting its 2nd Retrofit conference on 24th-26th January 2012 at the Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays.  The goal of Retrofit 2012 is to bring together a wide range of researchers from a number of disciplines to take a multi-perspective approach in identifying how domestic retrofit for energy efficiency may be best addressed and the key current and emerging research questions and findings. Retrofit 2012 encourages papers from disciplines including the sciences, economics, built environment, business and management, information technology and computing, psychology, and sociology. The papers must address the issues of the sustainable retrofit of the built environment and related issues of energy supply and demand. We encourage papers dealing with the following broad themes:

  • Policy and Regulation
  • Models, Performance and Evaluation
  • Communities, People and Behaviours
  • Technology and Materials
  • Production, Process and Supply Chain
  • Skills, Jobs and Economic Development

The focus on the conference is to develop workable solutions for the UK context although international papers are welcomed.
