We’re looking for someone to join our team (~10 people) to develop digital approaches to help reach our goal: cost effective zero carbon retrofit and new build homes.
This is an exciting new role for an innovation focused person. You will help us develop our digital strategy and deliver solutions with your own skills, working closely with our technical team, partners and subcontractors.
We are keen to hear from people who have all or some of what we are looking for. Please also see our ‘Zero carbon buildings: Technical Analyst’ role: we are interested to hear from people who have skills and experience that cross both roles.
Attractive. Flexible. 2 to 4 days/week. Contracted or employed. £350- £400/day, initial 12 months. Home/own office based, UK and EU travel required

Energiesprong is a revolutionary approach to getting existing and new homes to zero carbon, affordably. Smart digital approaches are key to creating cost effective ‘end to end’ zero carbon solutions: finding and analysing properties, standardising design and business cases for different archetypes; 3D scanning for manufacturing; monitoring and performance verification; maintenance; resident interface and payments; etc.
Energiesprong is an approach to delivering net zero energy retrofit of homes at scale, financed by savings and with performance guaranteed.
Dutch for ‘Energy Leap’, it was developed by the Dutch Government with their housing and construction industries between 2010 and 2017. The Netherlands has the same carbon reduction targets as those set by the UK Climate Change Act, requiring a zero-emission building stock by 2050. They realised that a radically different approach to the measure by measure, grant funded norm was needed. Delivery rates had to go up, and costs had to come down to enable financing without public subsidy.
The key principles of the Energiesprong approach are:
Energiesprong UK is an independent, 100% publicly funded not-for-profit organisation. Our mission is to adapt the Dutch approach for the UK and develop a volume market that can deliver net-zero energy retrofit and new build, at scale without public subsidy. We support landlords, supply chain, Governments and opinion formers and work closely with our sister Energiesprong teams in NL, FR, DE & IT.
Demonstration retrofit projects with 5 landlords have been completed and we are now scaling up delivery working with our partners the Mayor of London and Turner & Townsend on the Retrofit Accelerator for Homes Innovation Partnership designed to standardise approaches, aggregate design and drive supply chain innovation and cost reduction as volume grows.
Our strategy is: to stimulate demand, support the supply chain, develop funding and finance for market growth, and influence supporting and enabling policy and regulation. Social housing is the launching market, to build volume and proven self-financing net zero products that can then be marketed to private tenures in future.
Our current projects and funders include: Retrofit Accelerator Homes (Mayor of London & ERDF), MUSTBE0 (EU NWE Interreg), LB Sutton Whole House Retrofit (BEIS), National Net Zero Retrofit Accelerator (BEIS), Zero Energy Buildings Catalyst (Devon County Council & ERDF), Plymouth Energy Community Homes (various), Heat Pump Ready Wave 2 (BEIS).
