Being Net Zero is about keeping things in balance. Cutting out the bad things (like carbon and harmful gasses) that we put into our atmosphere and increasing the amount of good stuff – like green energy, green transport and green spaces we use to help remove and limit the bad stuff in our air. Changing the way in which we power our homes can help, together taking little steps to make big changes.
Net Zero Carbon in operation means an annual total of zero kilogrammes of carbon dioxide and equivalent greenhouse gases are emitted to atmosphere (0kgC02eq/yr). This includes all heating, hot water and occupant activities within the home, except electric vehicle charging. This is forecast by calculation and evidenced by post occupancy monitoring for each home, and factors time-of-use grid carbon emissions for both imported and export energy impacts.
