Low Carbon Learning Launch

"Imagine a Scotland where nobody live in fuel poverty, where nobody returns at the end of the day to a cold and mouldy house, where our vulnerable members of society are not at risk of dyeing from living in cold homes in the winter or homes which overheat in summer. Where everybody has a warm comfortable place to live."

Low Carbon Learning can help make that a reality.

Watch the launch webinar to find out more about our new retrofit and EnerPhit training programme.

Project Partners


Currently Passivhaus standard is the leading international low energy, design standard for new building and Enerphit is the standard for retrofitting existing buildings. Investment in skills training within this sector would prove critical in our pursuit of eradicating fuel poverty, through the decarbonize the grid, whilst simultaneously increasing fuel performance and creating a cleaner and more environmentally friendly way of living.
