star this property answer text <p>The energy performance of buildings is regulated mainly through Building Regulations rather than the planning system. The Building Regulations set minimum requirements for the energy efficiency of new buildings and for work on existing buildings.</p><p>Standards set for energy efficiency need to allow for a broad range of construction types, building orientations, site restrictions and other factors, therefore setting a Building Regulations minimum standard requiring carbon neutral buildings may not be feasible. We are, however, planning to consult later this year on an uplift to the Building Regulations energy efficiency standards where there are safe, practical, cost-effective, and affordable opportunities to do so. In addition, the Government has committed to introduce a Future Homes Standard by 2025 for new build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.</p> more like this
