Under Government plans, all old homes will have basic energy efficiency measures by 2015, and by 2020 seven million homes will have been upgraded to significantly improve the energy performance.

We are working with a wide range of partners in the housing and supply chain industry to research and develop best practice solutions for low carbon design and construction.

Designed to help the construction industry achieve performance standards that exceed those set out in Part L1A 2006 of the Building Regulations, our Enhanced Constructions Details help developers and builders to achieve the energy requirements in the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Easy access to our guidance on how to measure the energy performance of homes and regular updates on all our monitoring activities.
