Eco-Homes Oxford is an exciting new project being delivered by Low Carbon Oxford North and Rose Hill and Iffley Low Carbon, supported by Oxford City Council, the Low Carbon Hub and Communities for Zero Carbon Oxford. The project aims to showcase innovative ways to eco-renovate homes and improve energy efficiency, reducing both carbon emissions and living costs.










Make sure to get the following dates in your diary:

Green Open Homes Week, 18 - 29 June 2022:

Residents who have undertaken eco-renovation measures both large and small will open their homes (in person or virtually) and demonstrate the works they have done, explaining the practical advantages and pitfalls..

Eco-Renovation Fair, Sunday 26 June 2022, Oxford Town Hall

The fair will showcase examples of energy efficiency options and renewable energy generation. The fair will inform, inspire and provide enabling advice for homeowners and landlords interested in taking action to upgrade their properties to improve energy efficiency and phase out fossil fuels. It will also offer advice for tenants who wish to reduce their fuel bills and encourage their landlords to make their homes more energy efficient.
