Ecobuild 2014: Sainsbury's case study - impact of 2013 Part L
David Merefield, Head of Sustainability, Sainsbury's takes Ecobuild 2014's attendees through his case study of the impact of 2013 Part L.
The Government wants all new non-domestic buildings to be net zero carbon by 2019. As the new 2013 Part L regulations come into force in April 2014, designers and developers of new non-domestic buildings will be required to meet new carbon emission reduction targets through a balance of fabric-first efficiencies and deployment of renewable technologies. This session examines the details behind the headlines, and assesses which renewable energy technologies can deliver the most cost-effective solutions; how the overall 9% uplift will impact different building sectors; and what place will allowable solutions have?
