To keep this project independent we are raising independent funding. What would it mean to you if your property EPC rating was increased by one or two bands? For a typical British home this could mean increasing the property value by £5,000 – £10,000 and the value placed on EPC ratings by home buys is increasing rapidly each year as fuel bills rise. We invite you to donate towards this project and get the recommendations in front of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in time for their 2023 review.
For the greatest impact in lobbying our government with an evidence-based argument, we need to raise £240,000 for an effective investigation of a representative sample of UK traditional properties. The year-long investigation will involve building physics analysis, technical building assessments, data analysis, project management and administrative costs. Between the UK’s seven million traditional old homes, plus 450,000 listed homes and commercial properties, together we can make this happen.
We’re asking for a small sum of £2,000 from listed and period property landlords, or a tiered smaller sum from traditional building owners, to help us change the current system which is costing you so much more. If you represent a grant-giving trust, our CIC status allows us to receive funds from your organisation.
