About the seminar

From Zero Carbon to Zero Energy – the influence of National and European legislation on sustainable architecture

A look at how the government policy on Building Regulations “Part L” will, post Brexit referendum, respond to the European “nearly zero energy buildings” target for 2020 and what influence this will have on sustainable architecture, with case studies highlighting the effects of the proposed energy efficiency standards.

This will be an exploration of the statutory drivers for achieving the nearly zero-target, how this differs from the previous zero carbon target and the role of the statutory authorities such as planning and building control in achieving compliance.

The seminar will also cover possible fabric standards for new dwellings, case studies looking at design flexibilities and an analysis of the potential use of high efficiency energy systems and renewables.
