On Tuesday 19 January 2021, the Government responded to the Future Homes Standard Consultation.
The response highlighted the government’s ambition to achieving net zero carbon by 2050 and ensuring that new homes are built to be “zero carbon ready” as the National Electricity Grid decarbonises. New homes that are built to the Future Homes Standard will produce 75% less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions compared to new homes built to the current regulations. This will be achieved through high fabric standards and low-carbon heating systems
Emily Mansfield, calfordseaden Senior Sustainability Engineer, has put together a useful document that summarises the key notes from the Government’s response to the Future Homes Standard Consultation.
