Building Integrated

Building Integrated

Buildings in the UK produce over 40% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. So it’s not surprising that developers are facing increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprints. By 2016, planned legislation is likely to mean that all new domestic buildings will have to be carbon neutral in terms of energy for lighting, cooking, hot water and space heating. Further legislation requiring all other new buildings to achieve carbon neutrality is likely to follow.

Building integrated renewables are increasingly being used to meet carbon compliance targets and ensure developments meet the requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes, Building Regulations and planning policy. For generating electricity, technology options include solar PV and wind power. For producing heat, there are solar thermal, ground and air source heat pumps and biomass boilers. In some cases the development may be large enough to justify a CHP system. But what’s the right solution for your project?

We’ve helped clients for many years to meet policy, regulatory, legislative and financial viability requirements. As well as preparing green energy statements for the planning process we also carry out demand assessment, feasibility studies, technology selection and financial appraisal.
