Get ready for the transition to low-carbon heating and high levels of energy-efficiency as the Future Homes Standard launches in 2025

Future Homes Standard

What is the Future Homes Standard?

In a bid to tackle climate-warming emissions, the UK Government is committed to delivering zero-carbon homes by 2025 through their Future Homes Standard.

The aim is to radically improve the energy performance of new homes in England to ensure they are future-proofed with low carbon heating and high levels of energy efficiency.

It is due to come into effect in 2025 and will ensure that new homes in England produce at least 75% lower CO2 emissions compared to those built to current standards.

The Government is currently consulting on technical standards and details of the Future Homes and Building Standards. This consultation closes on the 6th March and can be accessed on the Government website.

We welcome the release of the consultation and are reviewing the technical consultation documents in detail to understand exactly what the standards are proposing in their technical detail. We will share more information on this widely in the near future to help inform and educate the industry and wider public about what is proposed.
