11 Jul Net-Zero Homes in Manchester
It is no secret Homes England are exploring plans for the future of Greater Manchester and has announced to build 30,000 net-zero homes over the next 16 years. Covering regions such as Bolton:
Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said:
“Right now we have to be creating homes and infrastructure that are fit for a better future, and our ambition is to deliver 30,000 good quality, truly affordable net zero carbon homes by 2038. Which means unlocking brownfield land for regeneration and ensuring that development supports sustainable growth throughout the city-region.”
To accomplish a successful strategy and increase delivery rates, Homes England are proposing a partnership with the Association of South Essex Local Authorities:
- Castle Point
It is important that the delivery of Net Zero Carbon Homes start with the pre-planning stages, right through to construction by supporting three core principles such as Energy Efficiency like heating, ventilation, lighting and more and finding ways of reducing running costs and carbon emissions. Low Carbon Heating which is the reducing the use of connection to gas networks and Renewable Energy Generation like the use of Solar Panels to offset energy costs. There are many more solutions and starting the conversation with the right companies can be enlightening and educating through this journey.
Achieving Net Carbon Zero will be achievable on anything new build in the near future, it will be tackling the existing properties that will be more of challenge for all involved.
If you know anything more relating to Zero Carbon Zero homes, we would love to be apart of this development.
