The Zero Carbon Hub- Energy saving today for tomorrow

The Zero Carbon Hub event at Newcastle was a great eye opener into the issues facing both new builds and retro fit refurbishments across the housing sector. As part of the Government’s strategy for the delivery of mainstream zero carbon new homes from 2016 and Carbon Compliance in all housing to limit the maximum permitted amount of CO2 arising from a home’s heating, cooling, hot water use, fixed lighting and ventilation systems.

The scale of the task that are faced by Not for Profit Housing Associations and community based charities is enormous, but working with Local Enterprise Partnerships and Business Support Networks the job is in hand, with real successes in Stockton Homes and Derwentside Homes. (SHED) Social Housing Enterprise Durham part of Derwentside Homes, are committed to adding social value to their project by employing Local people to provide a range of home improvement services to the general public living within County Durham.

One the main objectives of any retrofit programme are to make the housing stock more energy efficient and eliminate fuel poverty. We are currently working with Gentoo and Your Homes Newcastle with the aim to fit Heatkeeper energy saving radiator reflector panels to help reduce the heating costs for their home owners.
