The government has set a clear and challenging goal: for the UK to meet net zero by 2050. The housing sector has a huge role to play in meeting this goal, but to do this we’ll need to eliminate virtually all emissions from homes.
Housing associations are already acting and the homes they manage are more energy efficient on average than any other homes. The sector has also invested in energy efficiency and new heating technology for many years. But the scale of the challenge is so significant that it will require a huge programme of work at an unprecedented scale.
At the NHF we’ve been working with our members and many decarbonisation experts to develop a strategic, national approach to the decarbonisation challenge.
Although the approach from each organisation may differ depending on factors like stock condition, distribution and scale, it’s vital that we are all aligned in our vision.
