For Building Professionals
There is currently a substantial under supply of housing in the UK. In order to meet the demand for new homes, the housing sector is set to increase its build rate by 23% over the next 20 years. This means that by the year 2050, over a third of the UK’s housing stock will have been built inside of four decades. The Government is therefore focussed on using this growth as the ideal opportunity to cut energy use and water consumption in homes and is introducing legislation and guidelines in support of this.
The potential for reducing CO2 emissions as well as the energy demands of existing homes is even greater than with that of new build. Existing energy use is likely to be much higher than in a new build, due to lower insulation levels and older heating systems with low efficiency. Existing homes also have the potential to benefit from Government grant funding.
