Optimised Retrofit Programme 3: guidance 2022 to 2025 (ORP 3)

Requirements of Optimised Retrofit Programme year 3

  1. Social landlords are required to undertake retrofit measures to homes using PAS 2035 (PAS 2035:2019 Specification for the energy retrofit of domestic buildings). Lodgement with TrustMark is strongly recommended, with the intention of this being a requirement in the near future.
  2. Social landlords are required to install Environmental Sensors compliant with, ‘Optimised Retrofit Programme: environmental and energy monitoring’.

    Landlords are encouraged to include in their applications installation Environmental Sensors only to homes that will form future retrofit programmes (such ORP 3 2024/25) to create pre-retrofit data to support choice of measures for homes.
  3. Social landlords are required to use existing information and focussed survey data to develop a Whole Stock Assessment for their homes.

    Social landlords should produce a Target Energy Pathway for each home undertaking retrofit measures in ORP, setting out how that home will ultimately achieve targeted levels of affordable warmth and decarbonisation.

    To note – further guidance will be sent on what is required for both the Whole Stock Assessment and the Target Energy Pathway in due course.
  4. Social landlords are required to report on number of premises receiving retrofit measures, type of intervention used and other key outputs.
