EVENT: Building a green mortgage market
March 20, 2018
9:00 am - 1:30 pm
AECOM, Aldgate Tower, 2 Leman Street, London, E1 8FA
On Tuesday 20th March, UKGBC will be hosting a half day conference exploring opportunities for creating a market for green mortgages in the UK. The event is being hosted as part of the European Energy Efficiency Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) project which is aiming to create an energy efficiency mortgage offering better interest rates or additional capital in return for purchasing more energy efficient homes or committing to energy saving renovation work. The event will provide an overview of the EeMAP project, provide UK market input to the initiative and provide an update on other recent work in this area.
The conference will be hosted in two sessions:
09.00 – 10.30
Panel discussion: Building a green mortgage market
Hear from members of the EeMAP consortium about the project and progress so far, including work on existing green mortgages, green value and green building assessment. The outcomes of detailed international consumer research will be presented on the potential market for green mortgages. Representatives from BEIS will also provide an update on the work of the Green Finance Taskforce.
11.00 – 13.30
Workshop: Developing an energy efficiency mortgage in the UK
This workshop will explore how building assessments can be used to enable a low energy home or renovation package to qualify for an energy efficiency mortgage. The session will examine the draft proposals developed through the EeMAP project and discuss opportunities to pilot the approach in the UK. The EeMAP project will enter a pilot phase in June 2018 and the workshop will directly inform how these pilots will operate.
You can register to attend just the panel discussion or both the panel discussion and technical workshop. Limited places available. Please register early to avoid disappointment.
