01 Jan 2017

This paper provides a snapshot of future HVAC in a net-zero world, and outlines some of the mainthemes from the workshop discussions such as:

  • The changing relationship between occupants and buildings;
  • A shift in the approach and objectives for town planners;
  • A move to low energy HVAC technologies including step changes in controls;
  • A regulatory focus on building performance rather than construction;
  • Extension of government regulation into operational energy use.

Following an analysis of the most likely changes that are needed and the most common barriersthat may be encountered a series of recommendations or actions have been developed to helpgovernment and industry understand how the HVAC and property sectors can best transition todelivering and managing net-zero energy buildings.
