This report, produced by Currie & Brown and AECOM for the Committee on Climate Change’s UK housing: Fit for the future? report, summarises the research undertaken to inform the Committee’s recommendations on new build standards. It comprises a review of best practice in energy and carbon standards, alongside detailed modelling of a range of tighter standards for selected housing and non-domestic buildings in tandem with technologies for space heating and hot water. It sets out detailed independent recommendations to inform Government’s upcoming review of Building Regulations.
