Making way for low carbon solutions

The introduction of the Code for Sustainable Homes and future energy efficiency targets means that low carbon solutions, such as community heating, will increasingly need to be considered.

This NHBC Foundation guide examines how energy is used in a home, why the target for zero carbon homes exists and how this is being encouraged. The guide aims to provide builders and developers with an understanding of the subject so that workable and sufficiently flexible solutions can be explored for developments of all kinds of homes.
