Three Steps Towards Green Growth in the Housing Sector


Three Steps Towards Green Growth in the Housing Sector

The UK has been the most successful country at both growing its economy and reducing its emissions in the last 25 years.

This supports the ongoing debated that there is room for green growth within our country however the housing sector is still an area to rapidly expand and deliver green growth opportunities.

The release of the Industrial Strategy, 25 Year Environment plan and Clean Growth Strategy have been largely welcomed by various sectors. However, with the housing sector already lagging behind they run the risk of playing catch up unless they start adopting the following.

PLANS FOR A POST-GAS FUTURE

The housing sector is currently over-reliant on gas and hasn’t invested largely into new technologies such as heat pumps. The government however has plans to phase out reliance on gas by 2030 which will result in the housing sector looking to renewable technologies such as heat pumps (ground & air), MVHR and MEV units

INVEST IN THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE REVOLUTION

Currently the UK plans to phase out diesel and petrol engines by 2040 however it is likely that most industry will have move to EV long before that point. To ensure they are ready for this market shift housing associations should be making plans for fleet investment and demand for rapid charging now for housing tenants before the deadline comes into play.

INVEST IN SOLAR AND ENERGY STORAGE

Solar PV is already an established technology, however with the revolution of energy storage this allows for more possibilities to reduce fuel poverty and housing energy demand from the grid. Investing in these technologies will allow homeowners to benefit from producing and storing their own energy to use as and when they need it.

These action points show how the sector can actively and positively contribute towards green growth within the UK however with all renewable techs comes the need for maintenance care.
