There are many drivers for including renewable
energy and Low and Zero Carbon (LZC) technologies
within the construction of new building developments.
These include: Local Authority Planning Policy;
BREEAM; Code for Sustainable Homes; Building
Regulations Part L; Feed in Tarrif; Renewable Heat
Incentive; reduced bills; and lifecycle cost benefits.
Whether the driver is due to legislation, environmental
benefits or economic gains CHB Sustainability are able to provide the expertise to ensure that the most appropriate renewable energy or LZC technology is specified to meet the project specific requirements.
