Lucy Pedler and Dan Weisselberg from The Green Register will be chairing discussions, providing a key energy efficiency and building fabric presentation and running a workshop at the inaugural Low Carbon Homes Forum in Exeter June 5th, World Environment Day.
Almost drowned out by Brexit, the NHS, immigration and education discussions, last September the government department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) published its Clean Growth Strategy "an ambitious blueprint for Britain’s low carbon future". Within it is a commitment to phase out installation of high carbon fossil fuel heating in new and existing buildings off the gas grid, during the 2020s.
The Low Carbon Homes Forum-South West is free and takes place 5th June 2018 at University of Exeter’s Reed Hall. It is the first of three events taking place around the UK in 2018 seeking to encourage the adoption of new energy saving standards in areas not connected to the gas grid.
The forums will facilitate conversations to support decision making about how the four million homes and home owners in non-urban areas can be more energy efficient, contribute lower carbon emissions and become less dependent on fossil fuels. Particular emphasis will be paid to taking a collaborative approach towards the transition from predominantly oil based heating systems and will consider approaches relevant within the next five years.
The Green Register recognises the challenges that exist in this field and is keen to support Low Carbon Homes building confidence and encouraging action from the architects and installers as well as local authorities, housing providers and landlords who will be invited.
