Low Carbon Homes – Building for Net Zero

Low Carbon Homes: Building for Net Zero

Low Carbon Homes: Building for Net Zero

DATE: Tuesday 13th July 

TIME: 4:00-5:00pm BST

In this event, the APPG Environment will explore decarbonising UK homes and buildings. The Government has committed to making homes more energy efficient, cheaper to run, and less reliant on fossil fuel-based heating sources, which will be vital in meeting the UK's climate targets and leading on the international decarbonisation agenda. Now, the UK has a great opportunity to deliver. Our expert panellists will discuss: 

  • Policies needed to boost industry and consumer confidence to invest in green homes, skills training, and robust supply chains that will be necessary to get on track to net zero emissions 
  • The importance of providing an ambitious, coordinated roadmap for decarbonising buildings through the eagerly awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy 
  • How funding energy efficiency and heat pumps can support the delivery of a green recovery from covid
  • Key lessons that can be drawn from the Green Homes Grant Scheme
