The Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE) has signed a partnership with the National Energy Foundation (NEF) in a move that will support its practical knowledge transfer work and training to support green retrofit projects across the UK.
The partnership will also result in NEF chief executive Dr Kerry Mashford joining CoRE’s board.
CoRE chief executive David Pierpoint said: “The National Energy Foundation is hugely influential in the debates and activity around improving the use of energy in buildings and is keen to share this expertise and knowledge with our members and stakeholders.
“We are extremely pleased that they will be involved with CoRE and are delighted to welcome Dr Kerry Mashford to our board.”
NEF chief executive Dr Kerry Mashford said: “At the National Energy Foundation, we work on a daily basis to improve the use of energy in buildings.
“CoRE gives us a very high-quality way of sharing more widely than before what we know from decades of practical experience and research, and turning this into long-lasting skills and understanding that will transform the effectiveness of the national refurbishment programme.
“Together we can achieve so much more, and genuinely complement each other’s strengths.”
