How can we ensure that all new housing is zero carbon by 2016 and that carbon emissions from existing housing are cut 80% by 2050?
SHAP is the Sustainable Housing Action Partnership whose Vision is to provide leadership in Sustainable Housing by promoting, researching and disseminating best practice in the Environmental, Social and Economic Aspects of Sustainable Housing.
SHAP was originally established as the Sustainable Housing Action Programme in 2005 and has subsequently developed its activities by attracting the support of Partners from leading Social Housing providers, contractors and suppliers including RPs, ALMOS and Local Authority Housing Services together with Housing Bodies and Builders Merchants and became a Company limited by Guarantee in 2008.
SHAP has developed a range of leading edge projects for implementation by the SHAP partners and the wider housing sector which are set out in detail on the Project page.
The work of SHAP in leading the West Midlands in the understanding of how issues of fuel poverty and carbon reduction can be addressed through investment in energy efficiency measures in housing has been recognised by the HCA, DECC and West Midlands Local Authorities.
The SHAP work programme for 2013/2014 is currently being finalised and seeks to address key issues including maximising ECO investment in the West Midlands; monitoring the proposed changes in building standards; supporting the West Midlands Retrofit Steering Group and working with partners on construction skills training.
