The Green Housing Forum has announced details of its inaugural event.
Set to cover themes such as fuel poverty, the event will bring together housing professionals to focus on the various measures, initiatives and innovations that social housing providers are introducing to ensure that their most vulnerable tenants can afford to heat homes, whilst still meeting targets for sustainability and CO2 reduction.
With around one in four of the UK population in fuel poverty, a recent report by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Centre for Sustainable Energy found that beating the problem is the next great challenge for low-income households.
Sponsored by Daikin UK and in association with 24housing Magazine, the first Green Housing Forum event will feature a line-up of expert speakers, including Gill Payne, director of policy and external affairs at the National Housing Federation, and Ian Preston, senior analyst at the Centre for Sustainable Energy.
The event will be hosted by Two Rivers Housing at its new BREEAM ‘Excellent’ office at Rivers Meet, Cleeve Mill Lane, Newent, Gloucestershire, GL18 1DS on Wednesday, 12 March.
