The Prime Minister announced a mission to “at least halve the energy usage of new buildings by 2030” with an aim to “halve the costs of reaching the same standard in existing buildings too”.
As part of the “clean growth and grand challenge mission”, the UK Government will also aim to halve the energy costs for the existing building stock - both domestically and commercially. Heat and power for buildings currently account for 40% of national energy usage.
Commenting on the announcement, Capita’s Director of Property and Facilities Management, Mark Tyson said: “We welcome the 2030 target that Government has set and focusing on both new build and existing buildings is necessary if any target is to be practical and achievable. We agree with what UK Green Building Council has stated in calling for a clear trajectory for updating building regulations to achieve a net zero carbon from 2030”.
