Net Zero by Design - Our vision of a Zero Carbon Home and how we get there
13 October 2021
Upgrade today’s homes with the efficiency and tools to retrofit to Net Zero
The urgency to deliver on Net Zero has never been felt more strongly than today. Here the UK electrotechnical manufacturing industry sets out a pathway for decarbonising UK homes by 2050. Time is not on our side. As the future energy infrastructure emerges our homes must be ready to connect to it. We have less than 30 years to make UK homes fit for the future. We must prepare 29 million existing homes and millions of new build properties to use energy in a different way.
In this report we set out the steps we can take today to future proof our housing for Net Zero and for the changes to fuel use that will take place close to 2050.
