2025 Sees New Green Targets for Homes

Reduce Carbon Emissions - Morrison Sustainable Energy

New Green Targets

Housing Minister Chris Pincher has announced that all homes and businesses will soon have to meet rigorous new energy efficiency standards to lower energy consumption and bills, helping to protect the environment.

Responding to a consultation on the Future Homes Standard, the government has set out plans to radically improve the energy performance of new homes, with all homes to be highly energy-efficient, with low carbon heating and be zero carbon ready by 2025.

These homes are expected to produce 75-80% lower carbon emissions compared to current levels. To ensure the industry is ready to meet the new standards by 2025, new homes will be expected to produce 31% lower carbon emissions from 2021.

Existing homes will also be subject to higher standards – with a significant improvement on the standard for extensions, making homes warmer and reducing bills. The requirement for replacement, repairs and parts to be more energy efficient. This includes the replacement of windows and building services such as heat pumps, cooling systems, or fixed lighting.

I think this is a great step forward and will naturally create a more level playing field for developers.
