Ecobuild 2014: How does 2013 Part L fit into the route-map to 2019 zero carbon?
At Ecobuild 2014, Chris Twinn, Founder, TwinnSustainabilityInnovation asks 'How does 2013 Part L fit into the route-map to 2019 zero carbon?'
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?
