‘Transparent’ home energy assessments to be introduced

A proposed new method for assessing the energy performance of buildings is set to be more transparent and adaptable than the current one.

The Home Energy Model will be used to set standards for new homes to ensure that they will be ‘zero carbon ready’, future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.

The consultation proposes that the Home Energy Model will be released as open source, increasing transparency and making it easier for industry and researchers to apply and modify the methodology for different applications.
