Housing Professionals Debate the Future of UK Energy at Worcester’s Head Quarters
We recently partnered with the Housing Forum to deliver an Energy Summit event. Housing professionals came together to tackle future challenges relating to quality construction and heat provision in the UK.
Key speakers from across the housing and construction industry attended and discussed where energy might sit amongst a drive towards quality, sustainable housing and ambitious construction targets.
With increased governance on carbon emissions, heat was reported as arguably the UK’s biggest challenge when it comes to decarbonising and phasing out carbon fossil fuels in new build housing. As such, members of our team and spokespeople from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Energy Utility Alliance (EUA) addressed how the country might best transition from fossil fuel boilers to more sustainable alternatives, while causing minimal disruption.
Martyn Bridges, our Director of Technical Communication and Product Management, comments: “We are delighted to have hosted this year’s Housing Forum event, particularly given its focus on the future of energy. While there is a lot of work to be done, events such as this are crucial to facilitate healthy debate and innovation across the sector.
“With challenges ahead, it will only be through collaboration and quality design and workmanship that we will be able to meet housing demand effectively. The way we heat our homes is a huge part of this strategy to ensure quality of housing that is both sustainable and practical for end users.”
