CROHM - Carbon Reduction Options for Housing Managers

Housing stock assessment

If you are planning to reduce fuel poverty, planning a major retrofitting programme or want to exploit Renewable Heat Incentive, don't start without CROHM.

We have a number of requests from people wanting to better understand fuel poverty and carbon emissions of their stock and the most cost-effective steps to improve these.

In response, Baker Homes and Parity Projects offer a whole-stock carbon assessment which provides leading practical recommendations on how to improve both buildings and resident energy use and behaviour.

What you gain

The bespoke report you will receive will provide a pathway to low carbon for your stock, including:

  • A deep understanding of your stock's current energy performance
  • A highly flexible system which can be configured to suit your priorities
  • A detailed assessment of the most cost-effective options for improvement, with solutions ranked according to your specific priorities - be it reducing fuel poverty, energy bills, carbon emissions, improving SAP scores or any combination
  • Strategic planning and the support you need from senior managers, suppliers and tenants to effectively implement your programme

Client feedback

“The CROHM service, through its banded [client defined scenarios] approach to stock efficiency, provided a great route map for prioritising future investments for Trident.  The workshops were both very informative and well delivered – with the service achieving what it set out to do.

- Tony Clark, Director of Housing, Trident Social Investment Group


“The CROHM service helped us set a goal for improving our SAP rating which we are currently working towards.
Baker Homes not only delivered what we originally requested, they were proactive in identifying additional scenarios we had not considered that significantly improved the final report”
