Having previously explored financing home renovation as part of this series of webinars within the frame of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums contract, this webinar looks at home renovation from the perspective of the end user. While capital may be readily available to finance renovation, services that combine technical and financial advice together are not always available and the complexity and the burden of implementing a renovation project may be too high for some householders. This webinar will present successful examples that overcome these barriers and deliver home renovation at scale.
