    Zero Carbon Hub
    ceases operations

    arrow Back to news 13th April 2016

    The Zero Carbon Hub has announced that it has ceased operations as of 31st March 2016. The public/private body, which was launched in 2008 to support the government’s target for all new homes to be zero carbon by 2016 into practicable regulation and remove the barriers of its implementation.

    But following the government’s decision not to continue to pursue its zero carbon target, industry funding for the Hub has been withdrawn.

     

    In the last eight years the Hub has supported the new homes’ industry in the delivery of the zero carbon homes’ programme and overseen the successful introduction of higher energy efficiency standards.

     

    Paul King, chair, Zero Carbon Hub Board, said: “Zero Carbon Hub has been remarkably successful in bringing together a wide spectrum of stakeholders with an interest in the world-leading zero carbon target across public, private and third sectors.

     

    “It has been a model of collaboration between industry and government, helping translate policy aspiration into reality.

     

    “I would like to thank the many individuals and organisations who have supported us on this remarkable journey and their commitment to improving the quality of new homes.”

     

    Neil Jefferson, chief executive, Zero Carbon Hub, said: “I am extremely proud of what Zero Carbon Hub has achieved in the past eight years and very grateful for the hard work of its dedicated staff.

     

    “Since we embarked upon this journey, the industry has come a very long way and Zero Carbon Hub has made a significant contribution by engaging government, industry and consumer interests and successfully translating policy ambitions into practicable standards and guidance.”

     

    But despite the closure of the Hub, there is no doubting the need to continue to deliver sustainable, energy-efficient homes across the country.
