The UK government has set the ambitious target of ensuring that all new build homes are Net Zero by 2025, which places immense pressure on our current house building methods as we must evolve to meet these targets.
New legislation will require new build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency but are our traditional housebuilding methods equipped to do this, or could it holding back the carbon agenda?
As part of our third Net Zero Live session our panel of experts discussed some of the key challenges and how we can best overcome these:
- What are the limitations to traditional methods’ ability to deliver net zero ambitions?
- Are there modern methods better placed to meet these targets?
- How do we drive energy efficiency in existing houses to achieve net zero ambitions?
- What technologies and products are best placed to support the government’s net zero goals?
The session ran from 2pm to 3pm on 28 April.
