Meeting the target fabric energy efficiency (TFEE) is crucial when aiming to construct energy-efficient buildings. It's one of the key factors to consider when it comes to SAP calculations for new builds and you only have one chance to get it right. Floors The limit assigned to floors by the regulations is 0.25 W/m2K as an absolute maximum. Achieving less than this with floors is fairly simple, especially when using a quality PIR insulation board.
A report released yesterday by the BBC highlighted that the construction companies in the UK are not disclosing the full extent of their carbon impacts. The UK Chief Executive for Skanska, Gregor Craig, explained that companies calculate their own emissions and those figures often don’t include the environmental costs of their supply chain. Following the report released by the Committee on Climate Change, on 2nd May, calling for the UK to be a net-zero economy
Climate Change, energy use, and energy efficiency topics have been the focus of much of our news lately, thanks to the latest report from the Committee on Climate Change, who have addressed government environmental targets, and helped to pave out the new map to a ‘net zero economy by 2050. Their most recent report ‘Net Zero – The UK’s contribution to stopping global warming’, released on 2nd May, is a response to a request from
The Future of Energy Summary Report is released This week marked the release of the Future of Energy Report by Energy UK, which focuses on addressing the very complex issues surrounding energy markets, energy efficiency and energy use within the UK. It explores possible solutions to meet rising customer expectations, keeping pace with rapid technological advances, and continuing to decarbonise our economy. The report crucially recognises and highlights that to achieve a stable energy market,
The National Grid have reported that Britain broke records over the Easter weekend for the longest consecutive period without using coal power since the start of the industrial revolution. The previous record stood at 76 hours, set in April 2018 but this was surpassed as the country managed to go coal–free for 90 hours over the past few days. The good weather has undoubtedly assisted in this achievement, causing reduced energy demand and providing prime
Last month the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), launched a call for evidence, with a view of gaining insights from our industry on an energy efficiency scheme for small and medium sized businesses. Over the past few years the government has consulted on, and brought into force, numerous reporting frameworks, and regulations, which have focused on reducing energy use and emissions, and improving energy efficiency of large UK companies. Two of the
SAP and SBEM calculations are required when producing Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for new build properties. These are to be submitted for prior to the commencement of work. A SAP calculation indicates a score from 1 to 100+ for the annual energy cost based on a structure’s elements, heating and hot water system, internal lighting and renewable technologies. With the SAP calculation, the higher the score, the lower the running costs. This means that
Following much research, and an extensive consultation in summer 2018, the UK government have now launched the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting Framework (SECR). The new framework is effective from today, 1st April 2019, and as well as aiming to simplify the current reporting strategy, SECR replaces the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which also comes to an end this month. The changes have largely come off the back of the governments ‘Clean Growth Strategy’, published
It is well known that we have two major problems with housing in the UK. We have increasingly tight building regulations, meaning we have to continuously innovate the way we build to meet our carbon targets. At the same time, we are suffering a shortage of social and affordable housing, with a 95% reduction in the amount of social housing being built since 2010. So how do we meet both of these challenges? A programme
With the Chancellor's spring statement on the 13th of March came several interesting plans for the future of the UK, but most relevant to us was the plan to stop the installation of fossil fuel boilers in new homes built after 2025. This new pledge is a great step forwards in tackling the surprisingly high emissions that originate from our homes; 14% of the UK’s total emissions come directly from houses with another 15% from
