At a time of crisis: Zedpower to the people
The triple crisis of high energy costs, an overstretched power grid and a massive housing shortage is why we must innovate to create a future that works for everyone. Sustainability champion and industry legend Bill Dunster OBE, along with his team at ZEDPower, believes that a better future is possible and is already building it.
An exclusive opportunity at Futurebuild 2023, visitors will be lucky enough to be able to meet with Bill and the ZEDPower team and explore two of their latest trailblazing innovations, the revolutionary e port and the ZEDPower Micro Home, a flatpack, self-build and zero-bills eco-home that requires nothing more than a rubber mallet and a drill to complete its assembly.
Combining decades of experience in world-leading architecture and product design, Bill and his ZEDPower team ask the difficult questions within the construction sector and look to find long-term solutions. They believe an army of self-builders will be the answer to the housing crisis, with zero fossil energy developments the antidote to high energy costs, lack of affordable net zero homes, overpriced construction costs, land speculation and young people being priced out of the housing market. Their newest solution is set to make this possible.
With a lower build cost than traditional homes, the ZEDPower Micro Home is the solution to the most pressing issues within the UK and will allow people to take back control of their future. Quick and easy to construct, this truly flat pack home does not require cranes or technical experience; a group of friends can come together to build this cosy eco-home in days and will have the full technical support from ZEDPower as backup from start to finish.
This fully net zero ZEDPower Micro Home is super-insulated, powered by renewable energy and capable of operating with no fossil fuel energy bills. Off-grid capable, it needs only a fresh water supply but with mains drainage and grid connect options. It can be stacked to create multi-storey homes and can support local economies, as all materials are locally sourced. Furthermore, it doesn’t need large factories or infrastructure to produce the necessary parts.
Commenting Martin Osment, client of ZEDPower said: “Using beyond net zero integrated systems, developed with the lowest environmental impact and the highest living standards in mind, the ZEDPower Micro Home is a next generation space that enhances rather than degrades the environment, and that many people young at heart want to live in.”
Mat Bulba, the ZEDPower Operations Director suggests that an army of self-builders may be one of the ways of helping to solve the housing crisis. “Our award-winning, proven team are setting a precedent by successfully calling on local authorities and landowners to set up pop up assembly lines for local communities to build their own zero fossil energy developments, solving their own zero carbon housing needs in the process.”
This revolutionary self-build, zero-bills ZEDPower Micro Home will be on display at Futurebuild 2023 alongside ZEDPower’s new e port, a self-generating charging point that can charge an electric car, motorbike or bike, and generates enough power to then power the ZEDPower Micro Home. This innovative solution arrives ready-to-go onsite; all it needs is the base to be filled with ballast. An e port comes into its own as a micro power station.
Martin Hurn, Futurebuild’s event director said: “We are thrilled that Futurebuild 2023 has such an exclusive opportunity to showcase these game-changing solutions from someone who has stayed true to his sustainable roots. Innovation guru Bill Dunster OBE and his team at ZEDPower want to provide a future that works and we are delighted that we can showcase solutions that can address the triple whammy of crises our country is facing.”
You can visit the ZEDPower Micro Home at stand G8 and Bill Dunster OBE will be taking part in the conference debate: A decade of building ‘zero bills’ homes at Futurebuild 2023 on March 7th at 11:30.
Futurebuild 2023 will take place from March 7th to March 9th London’s ExCeL. For more details, visit www.futurebuild.co.uk
