Tuesday 1st March, 14:15-15:00 – The net zero challenge for new homes
COP26 further stressed what we already knew. If we are to meet our net zero commitments and limit global warming, we must start delivering net zero buildings NOW.
Uplifts in building regulations are close, but are they going fast and far enough? And will they deliver net zero homes that are comfortable for occupants, resilient and perform as their design intended? Quality assured build methods and performance evaluation and verification surely have a vital role to play in minimising the ‘performance gap’. There are a growing number of exemplar case studies from progressive clients, developers and designers who are leading the way. Can the current paradigms become the norm?
- How can policy accelerate the delivery of net zero homes? – Lynne Sullivan, Chair, Good Homes Alliance/Green Construction Board member
- Leading the way – Exemplar net zero/low energy housing case studies – Tom Dollard, Head of Sustainable Design/Associate Partner, Pollard Thomas Edwards
- Do net zero homes perform as designed? – Building performance, mitigating overheating risks and more – Julie Godefroy, Sustainability Consultant/Head of Sustainability, CIBSE
