BEAMA: Net Zero Healthy Homes – the wider benefits of home improvements for health

 

 

Zero Carbon Homes – powered by elemental talks

About this webinar

As we look at the prospect of retrofitting millions of homes across the UK between now at 2050 how can we harness the potential to improve the overall health and wellbeing of households.

Solutions for reducing emissions from our properties should be viewed alongside other associated upgrades that can be made to improve the health of the UK population.

Net Zero is about creating warm and comfortable homes for the future and we know that improved ventilation in properties is necessary alongside energy efficiency improvements to avoid problems of poor indoor air quality.

There can also be options to look at the wider wellbeing of occupants, including  through the widespread deployment of connectivity in our homes.

Join us to discuss this important topic and look at options to ensure a national retrofit program linked to Net Zero can improve the health and wellbeing of all involved.

About the series 

In one of the most pivotal years in our history in combating the catastrophic impact of climate change BEAMA and elemental have partnered to deliver a series of talks on the UK’s requirement to retrofit millions of homes by 2050, installing low carbon heating in order to meet Net Zero.  

These talks address the wide spread delivery challenge facing the industry and we invite you join us in discussing a way forward for our sector as we harness the opportunities for widespread emission reduction in the UK and the improved health and wellbeing of UK householders.

BEAMA: Reducing the cost of Net Zero - system improvements for low carbon heating

 

 

Zero Carbon Homes – powered by elemental talks

About this webinar

System improvements can significantly reduce the cost of low carbon heating and so it’s vital we look at a strategy to optimise control and the efficient operation of UK residential heating systems as part of the wider plans for UK retrofit programs.

This isn’t just about installation and retrofit but about the longer term maintenance and servicing of our homes to ensure their efficiency is optimised to save on customer bills and ensure emissions savings are guaranteed for the future.

Measures to improve system efficiency have the potential to reduce current gas consumptions for heating and hot water by 22%.

How do we take steps now to deliver system efficiency as we look to new low carbon solutions for heating our homes? Join us to discuss this important topic.

BEAMA : Home electrical infrastructure of the future – how Net Zero is changing the electrical foundations in our homes

 

 

Zero Carbon Homes – powered by elemental talks

About this webinar

Home electrical infrastructure of the future – how Net Zero is changing the electrical foundations in our homes:

Here we will be discussing how the UK Government’s commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2050 may impact the homes we currently live in and our future homes.

The three following topics have been selected as discussion points; We highlight the current situation, the issues surrounding these, and what can be done to overcome these issues, what needs to be in place to make this happen and who benefits.

1.    Mandatory Electrical Safety Inspections

2.    Three Phase supply to homes

3.    The Domestic Energy Centre

BEAMA: Skills for Net Zero – the electrical industry discuss the growing demand for skilled jobs to deliver Net Zero

 

 

 

Zero Carbon Homes – powered by elemental talks

About this webinar

The UK Government have set a target for 2million green jobs by 2030. As we look at the scale of delivering Net Zero for our sector in terms of technology development, R&D, innovation and manufacturing capacity we acknowledge the huge skills and employment challenge ahead of us.

There is significant potential for growth in UK low carbon technology industries,  but how do we source the skills needed,  re-train an existing workforce and encourage young people to enter into the industry at a scale not seen in many generations?

This requires a national effort in structuring wide scale training programs and industry recruitment.

Join us to discuss the current skills shortages in the market today and a way forward for scaling up the industry’s capacity to deliver Net Zero.   This is in direct support and follow up to the UK’s Green Jobs Task Force report.

Central plant: How can efficiency be built-in at the heart of the system?

Conserving precious energy resources, whilst at the same time cutting carbon emissions, is core to the UK Government’s planned response to the recommendations of the Sixth Carbon Budget and its bid to progress down the pathway towards Net Zero by 2050.

Core to this combined energy efficiency and emissions reduction strategy are not only the services and technologies in individual dwellings and buildings, but also the data, systems and heat networks connecting them. In turn, at the heart of these is the central plant room.

As a result, the modern building services engineer is increasingly pushed to create specific central plant designs that will not only save energy resources and cut costs, but can shrink carbon footprints and be compatible with other kit, too. They must also meet the latest regulations, plus prove flexible and adaptable to changes in demand and behaviour.

Satisfying diverse requirements and demand management of such complexity is a big ask.

Any successful design solution must allow for the easy and efficient integration of renewable energy sources, such as CHP, solar and heat pumps. The central plant system also needs to offer a reliable and optimal way of producing hot water, controlling the heating and metering each individual flat, apartment or house.

The box of tools at an engineer’s disposal includes the likes of Heat Interface Units (HIU’s) and flow regulators, consumer modules and metering products, plus the correct buffer vessel for the job. Improving and maintaining plant room efficiency is doable, but not easy.

This webinar therefore explores the various ways in which low-carbon energy efficiency can effectively be built-in at the heart of any system or network, in the plant room itself.

The session builds on the recent Elemental Talk on the subject of Heat Networks, also run with Altecnic, that asked How can we future-proof the growth of UK heat networks?
