Tackling energy efficiency and affordability at InstallerSHOW
Recent research from the Home Builders Federation (HBF) highlighted that people moving house are increasingly looking for homes that are energy efficient, giving them more certainty over fuel bills and affordability. This focus on the energy performance of our homes comes as Building Regs are updated and the industry prepares for the Future Homes Standard in 2025.
The expert speakers in the free-to-attend elemental content theatres – taking place alongside InstallerSHOW at the NEC in June – will be addressing these issues and more, shining a light on the route to net zero for built environment professionals.
The three-day conference programme will feature thought-provoking discussion and an opportunity to learn about the key issues facing the industry when it comes to energy, heat, air and water in our buildings. Visitors to the event will be able to hear about sustainable housing projects that are being created today, as well as have a glimpse into the future to see what housing will look like as the country heads towards net zero. Some of the highlights of the conference programme will include how big data can help to achieve energy efficiency, successful district heating projects, how we judge sustainable housing and how to future-proof developments to make long-term thinking affordable.
Confirmed speakers so far include environmental campaigner Jonathon Porritt, who will be delivering a keynote speech on 22nd June. Attendees will also hear from experts from organisations including Wates Group, Cheltenham Borough Council, British Gas, Energy Saving Trust, NEA, PEPA, Genesis Housing and many more. There will also be a series of seminars and panel discussions run by BEAMA, with topics to include making heating systems fit for the future and how high-tech housing can work.
The theatres will be hosted by Dhruti Shah, Fiona Harvey and Jim McClelland, three journalists with extensive experience in sustainability and environmental issues.
Elsewhere at InstallerSHOW, visitors can discover the latest green technology, including in the Wates Innovation Zone. This area will feature exclusive product demos from a host of extensively vetted suppliers who can offer genuine, market-leading sustainable technology to help in the design, construction, maintenance and use of buildings.
Just some of the innovators within the Wates Innovation Network include Solar glass, Hydrotap, Ecoprod, Beanbag, Dyson, Altecnic, Elysator and Mixergy.
