Net zero carbon aspirations for Guernsey by 2050 – what does it mean for you as a householder?
TRADA article by Stuart Edwards Managing Director Green Axis Ltd
Net zero carbon homes building for the future
An interesting article in TRADA magazine today which is relevant to the Guernsey government’s aspirations for net zero carbon by 2050. You have to be a member to read the whole thing, but here is a quote, which may be of interest to you.
“When considering the energy demand differences between homes built to satisfy current Building Regulations and those designed to address net zero carbon performance, it is sobering to realise that every new Building Regulations compliant home we build today will require retrofitting to improve fabric performance before 2050. We continue to add to the retrofit burden that already exists in the UK building stock of circa 20 million homes.”
This article is relevant to Guernsey too as we continue to build without any Government legislation or funding to achieve their objectives. Our politicians must address this issue and provide practical guidance and set aside the millions of pounds that this aspiration will cost us all as homeowners.
