Focusing minds on energy efficiency

What is Low Carbon Homes?

What Is Low Carbon Homes?

Low Carbon Homes brings global domestic energy efficiency innovation to the UK’s regions via a nationwide event series – the Low Carbon Homes Forum.

Low Carbon Homes wants to drive the adoption of new energy saving standards by providing a unique platform. Here, professionals can share best practice and discover pioneering methodologies and products to help transform home efficiency, reduce fuel poverty and lower carbon emissions.

The Challenges

  • Apathy and resistance to change – key influencers are unmotivated to recommend change; easier to “do nothing”
  • Cost perceptions – unconvincing ROI
  • Confusing/conflicting information – a lack of consistency from “experts”
  • Technological complications – pace of innovation difficult to keep up with
  • Inconsistent government policies – financial incentives reducing, and questionable and fluctuating priorities

Our Solution

We’ll provide success stories and case-studies in a forum-style community. Our events will be tailored to address regional issues and deliver solutions that are right for your area.

By facilitating knowledge exchange, peer-to-peer learning and debunking myths, we will reduce barriers and accelerate the take-up of energy efficiency best practice in your region.

Why Low Carbon Homes?

It has to be the Government's role to nudge us all to take up #heatpumps and other low carbon heating tech. 35% market penetration in Switzerland. 22,000 heatpumps installed in UK in 2017... 1.6m gas boilers. Go figure.
