Green Housing Forum Tackles Fuel Poverty

Green Housing Forum at Homes 2016

The latest Green Housing Forum drew attendees from across the country to listen to seminars from the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Energy Saving Trust and several housing associations. Sponsored by Daikin UK the collaborative forum aims to tackle fuel poverty and increase sustainable housing stock.

Launched in 2014 and sponsored by Daikin UK, the Green Housing Forum allows professionals from government, housing associations, local authorities and energy technology companies to collaborate and discuss policy, innovation and the challenges that need to be overcome to combat fuel poverty. The largest forum to date so far took place at the Homes event in London Olympia on the 16th and 17th November.

Nancy Jonsson, Director of Commercial Heating and Renewables at Daikin UK, said, "As highlighted at both The Green Housing Forum and as announced at the launch of the welcomed improvements to the domestic RHI, heat pump technology is essential to limiting the impact of fuel poverty and future proof the UK’s heating network.

"Both the Government and the Green Housing Forum unanimously agree that we must take action to reduce costs and carbon emissions when tackling fuel poverty – and that renewable heat pump technology will play a large role in that future.

"The method in which homes are heated will change significantly by 2050 and heat pump technology is pertinent to ensuring that the UK’s housing stock is sustainable and therefore cost effective for residents to heat."
