Zero Carbon Building is The New Standard In England
Zero carbon building is going to be the standard in the UK as of 2016. By that time all new buildings will have to be carbon neutral, the government decided awhile back. In the meantime, there’s a lot of activity going on in the housing sector to prepare for this rather close deadline.
People working at the government and the building sector itself believe that there is little or no doubt that this deadline will not be met. But the deadline itself is not the issue because all will be spick and span and carbon neutral sometime in the future come what may. The people in Britain are already wondering what their houses and towns will look like in around two decades’ time. Another question that arises is whether carbon neutral houses are only for the rich.
