The Land Economy project team in the Horizon 2020 EU project convened a national advisory board meeting and expert seminar at the Department on 29 September 2017.

The board includes experts from industry (ThinkStep, Green Door Valuation), government (Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) as well as valuation associations (TEGoVA), social enterprises (Energy Savings Trust) and landlord representatives (National Landlords Association). The event gave experts a forum for providing feedback on an innovative software tool that is currently being developed as part of the RentalCal project and enables landlords to conduct a detailed and realistic viability analysis of potential energy efficiency retrofits in the private rented sector. The seminar concluded with a discussion of the major risk factors and mitigation strategies for upgrading the energy efficiency standards of buildings in a changing macroeconomic, technological and regulatory context.
