Energy efficiency for historic buildings

Warwick District Council declared a Climate Emergency in June 2019 and aims to become a carbon-neutral organisation by 2025. Nationally, about 20% of all homes were built before 1919, using traditional methods and materials. Maintaining these buildings is a powerful climate action, as it ‘locks in’ the carbon used to build these in the first place. 

See our energy efficiency for historic buildings page for further guidance.
