Abstract

UK Government targets to cut carbon emissions by 80% by year 2050. While working towards zero carbon new homes, refurbishment of the existing housing stock is essential as 27% of the UK’s CO2 emissions coming from energy use in homes. Developing a culture of innovation in organisations and industry appears to be vital in triggering innovation and leaders face many challenges. Number of research studies carried out in the social housing sector over a decade (2000-2010) highlight key issues that are important in implementing innovative technologies. The results identify a range of leadership and organisational characteristics that are needed to drive innovation.
