He said “Entries to the Retro Expo Awards this year displayed considerable innovation and a clear commitment from industry and practice to deliver high quality retrofit technologies, practices and projects.  The judges were pleased to see entries from individuals, SMEs and large established businesses; demonstrating the breadth of engagement in retrofit activities.  Many entries this year, and last, reported on technologies that have just been released and projects that have recently been completed.  We look forward next year to hearing how these technologies and projects are performing in practice.”

The Awards were hosted by TV presenter and campaigner, Penney Poyzer, who won the DECC Retrofit Pioneer Award last year.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our Judges, all the companies who entered the awards and take this opportunity to say congratulations to all of the winners!
