Energy efficiency and sustainability @ the Green Housing Forum

Energy efficiency and sustainability @ the Green Housing Forum

Sponsored by Daikin UK, the Green Housing Forum will deliver a range of insight over two days – hopefully sparking discussion and debate. Speakers and topics will range from Government policy updates to case studies, social landlords, innovators and key drivers on the fuel poverty debate.

All Home’s delegates are welcome to attend the presentations and then have their say by participating in breakout roundtable discussions on the themes and issues identified.


The format

The forum will focus on tackling fuel poverty and look at new and renewable technologies as well as the challenges and benefits of cost effective sustainable heating.

Morning sessions include breakfast and the afternoon session includes lunch.

    The opening session of the Green Housing Forum at Homes 2016 will focus on ‘A new vision to alleviate fuel poverty’. Fuel poverty remains one of the biggest challenges facing low income families in the UK today. Despite progress being made by national and local Government, social landlords, housing and technology suppliers and campaigners, fuel poverty is still compounded by a triple injustice: low incomes, high energy prices and energy inefficient housing.

    Statistics from DECC’s 2016 Fuel Poverty report reveals 21% of all households living in properties with the lowest energy ratings (E, F or G) are fuel poor – they make up 44% of all fuel-poor households. This is compared to only 2% of households that live in properties with the highest energy ratings (A, B or C) – they make up just 6% of all fuel-poor households.

    The sessions will cover:

    • The changing fuel poverty policy landscape
    • The latest statistical breakdown as to who’s most vulnerable and why
    • Practical examples as to how fuel poverty has been alleviated
    • Hybrid technology solutions for tackling fuel poverty

    Wednesday afternoon will focus on the Smart Communities Project Greater Manchester. This project is a live, international collaboration that has applied leading edge, disruptive heat technology to some of the communities that will most benefit from increased efficiency and reduced energy bills.

     

    The Green Housing Forum will explore the smart communities’ project in detail covering:

    The sessions will cover:

    • Why Greater Manchester was identified as the right location
    • Why local government recognised the value of the project to its long term sustainability agenda
    • The technology
    • The challenges faced in delivery
    • How social landlords and tenants were supported
    • What was learnt by all involved

    Smart meters and connected devices are becoming increasingly present in affordable housing. To discuss their diverse application, the benefits and the issues involved in ‘smarter homes’, The Green Housing Forum will host a Thursday morning session focused on connectivity, and how it might transform the sector forever.

    Currently less than one percent of devices are connected, but according to technology research firm Gartner, there will be 26 billion devices on Internet of Things IoT by 2020. Humidity sensors designed to pre-empt damp problems or heat sensors to flag fuel poverty are just two of the many possibilities of IoT in social housing.

    With the potential for huge improvements to living conditions and significant financial benefits, housing providers, asset managers and tenants all have a vested interest in the topic of connectivity. It’s time to talk smart.

    Speakers will cover:

    • Distributed heat networks
    • IoT and fuel poverty
    • Smart meters
    • Remote metering and monitoring

  • "I really enjoyed the Homes 2015 conference and in particular finding out from others what they are doing to support women wanting careers in construction.
