Future Ready Homes
Contact: William Bushell




Future Ready Homes is a joint project which gives householders access to all the help and advice they need to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. We’re also looking to engage with contractors and professionals working in retrofit. At present Future Ready Homes covers Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys.

Marches Energy Agency and Severn Wye Energy Agency are both charities with long experience of working in energy efficiency and sustainability. As such we are uniquely able to offer independent, impartial, values-driven advice on how to retrofit your home.

Householders wanting to start their retrofit journey can apply now for an independent, bespoke and fully funded whole house retrofit plan to make their homes more energy efficient. We’re looking for a range of house types, and funding is limited, so not every application will be successful.


For all the questions most often asked about retrofit, from the cost / benefit of battery installation, to understanding how to ventilate your home properly, please look at our F&Q section link below


If your question isn’t answered in the FAQs, email us with full details of your property and your question. If we don’t know the answer then we’ll know an expert who does. This service is at no cost to you, and the most useful questions will be added to the FAQs for others to benefit from.

Green Doors

Green Doors events are a great way to see completed retrofit projects and meet the householders to learn from their experience. The next events in the Marches are being held in October 2023, but you can read useful case studies here:

Our partner HGN is organising a series of highly informative webinars on topics such as retrofitting for a healthy home, heating sustainably with wood, heat pumps, use of natural materials for retrofit, and the cost:benefit of solar panels. You can sign up for these free webinars on Eventbrite, and catch up on previous ones on YouTube.
