all homes to be code level 6

All UK homes could meet a Code Level 6 by 2050  in line with the planned Code for Sustainable Refurbishment to reduce carbon emissions from existing homes.  Source

Now this will surely start another, necessary, debate on how this is possible, and how it will impact on the huge sector of our industry that refurbs and maintains our housing stock.

Do we have the skills? ( I sense another Skills Gap analysis report will be on its way soon, stating the obvious)  It starts to make the 2010 Great ReSkilling programme predicted by Rob Hopkins in the Transition Handbook sound more feasible.
