The Low Carbon Homes event will be hosted by the Low Carbon Dorset initiative in March 2019, followed by University of Brighton’s Clean Growth UK in April and Manchester City Council in November.
Low Carbon Homes is a UK-wide initiative which brings together leading experts to share best practice to help clarify the route towards a low carbon future.
LCH Forums are free-to-attend events open to everyone across the industry, including engineers, local authorities and housing professionals as well as landlords, developers and contractors.
Delegates will have a choice of workshops which will include case studies and success stories as part of a tailored programme created with the guidance of host organisations to meet regional needs.
The 2019 events will each be produced with support from The Green Register, with emphasis on a ‘fabric first’ approach to low carbon homes.
“The unique platform provided by Low Carbon Homes can facilitate meaningful and practical understanding between those directly involved in many areas of the housing sector,” said Lucy Pedler, The Green Register’s founder.
Graham Lock, founder of Low Carbon Homes says “As reiterated during the recent Green GB Week, if the UK is to achieve its global obligations, there must be a rapid take-up in domestic energy efficiency – especially in the 80% of existing housing stock which is poor performing. For those working within the housing industry, the subject of energy efficiency has never been so important and we must all play a role in driving forward change.”
Th e events are free to attend. For more information see www.lowcarbonhomes.uk.
