The UK Government stated its ambition that all new homes should meet a Future Homes standard, aiming to halve the energy use of all new buildings by 2030, compared to the current Building Regulations requirements, which is a significant step towards meeting a net zero target.
The Good Homes Alliance believe that the Future Homes Standard is a key opportunity for Government and the house-building industry to address both energy demand and carbon dioxide emission reductions, in addition to other issues such as quality, overheating, innovation, skills, energy efficiency and occupant health & well-being.
Our 2019 conference brought together policy makers, house-builders and their supply chains to debate the key challenges, discuss how to meet the government’s proposed Future Homes standard and possible net zero targets, and demonstrate how to deliver high quality, low carbon, healthy homes, which are fit for the future.
Session 1 – The policy landscape
Session 2 – Making the case for net zero
Session 3 – How to deliver net zero – Case studies
Session 4 – Ensuring performance
