Zero Carbon Compendium
This Compendium aims to create a better understanding of the issues surrounding the achievement and delivery of zero carbon housing, improve the quality of the debate, and set out a basis for better international comparisons and collaboration. This document clearly sets out comparable data across an interesting set of case studies, perhaps highlighting the need for a harmony of approach with regards to assessing building performance, and providing
the start for a more detailed evaluation of specific criteria related to energy and emissions on an international level.
The comparison of measures and policies across the countries also assists in putting UK policy in an international context and serves as a useful tool in the coming years, as we move towards achieving our carbon reduction goals.
