A cloud based decision support tool
RetroKit uses BER data, a geographic information system (GIS) and data analytics to enable retrofit housing professionals identify retrofit opportunities and develop retrofit plans.
How does it work?
DATABASE – RetroKit creates a customised database, with the baseline energy performance of your housing stock. Including energy use and expenditure, carbon savings and BER rating, for multiple homes in a grouped project or zoomed in on for individual homes.
ANALYSE – This database is then analysed to model and compare a wide range of energy renovation scenarios, helping you decide on the best route to meeting your objectives of the client, whether these are based on budget, CO2 emissions, the health of your homes or fuel poverty targets.
PLAN – With this data and knowledge, the housing stock owner uses RetroKit to develop their energy retrofit action plan, defining bespoke packages of energy conservation measures with budget estimates, funding opportunities and a work plan.
The software creates easy to follow and visual reports, as the image highlights.
