Is a #ZeroEnergy building by 2050 achievable? @UKGBC launches report to inspire and challenge the built environment

It was created by bringing together experts from across the built environment, in a ‘futures workshop’, with a brief to ‘think big’ and challenge conventional thinking. Working closely with Heathrow Airport, which sponsored the first futures workshop, UK-GBC has identified innovative ideas and concepts. Heathrow’s terminal buildings were used as case studies to spark discussion around a number of sustainability features and potential innovations to reduce energy demand across the airport’s estate. The ideas contained within the report relate to the experience, design and operation of a building, all of which could be integrated into long-term strategies, by organisations across the built environment, with a view to achieving a zero energy building in 2050.
