In light of the urgent need to decarbonize 27 million UK homes, BSi have updated the documents that describes how to conduct retrofits on existing dwellings to improve their energy efficiency.
What does PAS 2035/2030:2023 cover?
PAS 2035 specifies requirements for retrofit of dwellings, including assessment for retrofit, identification and evaluation of improvement options, design and specification of energy efficiency measures (EEM) and monitoring and evaluation of projects.
PAS 2030 specifies requirements for the installation of energy efficiency measures (EEM) in existing dwellings including installation processes, process management and service provision, and criteria relating to installation methods.
Why use PAS 2035/2030:2023?
PAS 2035/2030:2023 sets out best practice in providing “whole house” retrofits for domestic dwellings from project inception to handover and evaluation. Advantages of use include:
it covers “end to end” energy efficiency, rather than piecemeal fixes,
it details an efficient and effective approach,
as a national standard it builds trust and confidence in outcomes,
it contributes to homes that are more comfortable and longer-lasting,
it minimizes the risk that retrofits are done poorly and are ineffective,
it contributes to net carbon reduction
compliance with PAS 2035/2030:2023, as well as TrustMark registration, is a requirement of domestic retrofit under government energy efficiency schemes

To assist with the retrofit process, and to establish robust processes for managing risks, the British Standards Institution (BSI) has collaborated with Government and the retrofit industry to develop the BSI Retrofit Standards Framework.
The whitepaper explains the background to the framework and its three main components, the Publicly Available Specifications PAS 2035, PAS 2030 and PAS 2038. It also explains the benefits of using the standards and plans for their future development.
