In 2019, the UK Government introduced its plans for the Future Homes Standard, a benchmark for new homes that will improve energy efficiency, making homes built now, fit for the future.
The aim of this standard is to bring the UK’s entire greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. New and existing homes currently make up around 20% of the country's totals emissions, highlighting the significant role our sector has to play in meeting this target and tackling the climate crisis.
The Future Homes Standard will be introduced in full by 2025, meaning fossil fuel heating systems will no longer be installed in new homes from this point. It's estimated an average home built by these new guidelines will have 75-80% less carbon emissions than one built to current requirements.
At Ultra Renewable Energy, we are committed to meeting this challenge by future-proofing existing homes and ensuring new homes are built with the most efficient energy systems.
You could be eligible for a grant of up to £10,000 to cover the cost of these future-proofing upgrades for your home - Click here to find out more!
