The Future for the Energy Industry and 'Zero Carbon' Homes
Julian Hetherington chats with company founder and director David Rolton.
On the blog this week, Chairman Peter Rolton discusses the future of the energy industry; with nuclear stations being switched off and no replacement in sight, can the UK rely on another dash for gas to meet its energy needs?
Associate Director Craig Smith addresses the altered definition of ‘zero carbon’ in the upcoming 2016 Building Regulations, which have been brought in to counter the previously impracticable requirements for developers.
He questions whether the changes made have gone too far in the other direction, however, now making it too easy for developers to classify themselves as ‘zero carbon’ by simply ignoring large sections of carbon emissions which were previously contained in the Code for Sustainable Homes.
