Mustbe0 is an EU funding programme that focusses on affordable, desirable, long-term performance guaranteed net-zero retrofits for apartment buildings in North-West Europe and the UK.
The UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands alone have 43 million apartments that are not yet future proof because there is no compelling deep-energy retrofit solution for them. Finding this solution is key if countries are to achieve the UK's and the EU's CO2 target. Energiesprong has a solution. Within the Mustbe0 project, Energiesprong market development teams will kick start the UK market for these buildings.
The award winning Energiesprong net zero energy standard and funding approach provides modern and comfortable homes that people love to live in. After a retrofit, a net zero apartment generates enough energy for its heating, hot water and power appliances.
The Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are responsible for delivering one of the UK projects, the refurbishment of Treadgold House. This will not only improve the lives of the Treadgold House residents but also show how the Energiesprong model in the UK can be adapted for similar blocks.
