The aim of this project is to redevelop a typical 1930s semi-detached house to comply with the zero-carbon targets proposed for all new homes built from 2016 onwards.

From the 1930s to 1960s there was a large house build program in the UK. These houses currently make up around 60% of the UK housing stock. It is estimated that around 20% of UK CO2 emissions derives from domestic housing stock so clearly there is a large opportunity to reduce UK carbon emissions by retrofitting these homes and increasing their overall efficiency.

Key factors driving the E-ON house project:

  • Each year the average household in the UK emits enough CO2 to fill six hot air balloons 10 metres in diameter.
  • There is an urgent need for affordable routes for existing home owners to reduce their energy consumption and adapt their properties to meet sustainable contemporary lifestyles
  • To significantly reduce overall CO2 emissions, existing homes will also need to move towards the Government’s target of zero carbon emissions from new properties after 2016.
