KEYNOTE STAGE 1
Decarbonising New Homes– how the Public and Private Sectors are working together to achieve Net Zero Housebuilding
03 March / 11.15 -12.00
As part of its drive to decarbonise the grid, from 2025 the Future Homes Standard will ensure that all new homes are net zero ready and produce at least 75% fewer carbon emissions than those built to the 2013 standards. As an interim step, the 2021 uplift to energy efficiency requirements for new homes will deliver a meaningful reduction in carbon emissions, with new homes expected to produce around 30% less carbon emissions from June 2022. This session will consider how housebuilders are adapting in response to government legislation, as well as to increasing investor, lender and consumer demand to improve housebuilding’s environmental credentials, and how Homes England is helping ensure that the supply of much-needed new homes is maintained throughout the transition.
