The Government remains committed to zero carbon homes and this was confirmed in the 2013 budget when the intention to consult on the next steps towards zero carbon was announced.
Accordingly, on the 6th August 2013, a consultation package was launched to gather further evidence and seek views on the proposal to use Allowable Solutions as a cost effective means of achieving zero carbon.
This Construction Briefing summarises the proposed approach to delivery of zero carbon homes by 2016 and the part Allowable Solutions could play in demonstrating compliance.
This sheet explains the context and importance of zero carbon homes and contains tabular details of the proposed energy and carbon levels which must be achieved to comply with the Standard.
