Reducing Energy Use in the Built Environment

built-environment

About half of CO2 emissions in the UK come from energy used in our homes and buildings hence why the UK Government is implementing tougher regulations in the built environment.

Get on top of new Government energy standards, assess risks and, where necessary, act now to make improvements that ensure buildings exceed the minimum energy efficiency standard or face the prospect of the value of your assets decreasing significantly.

April 2018: It will be unlawful to renew of grant new leases for residential, or commercial property with an EPC rating below "E" unless registered as an exemption.

April 2020: Regulation extended to apply to ALL residential lettings (both new AND existing)

By commissioning or upgrading existing systems, you can expect energy savings of 20 to 40%, which typically represent a simple payback of less than 3 years on average.

The seminar sessions will cover the trends and technologies of energy efficient building, identifying strategies for implementing energy savings and enabling the use of renewable resources.
