The Building Regulations already require energy efficient new buildings. The minimum energy performance standard for new buildings has been increased by over 30 per cent since 2010.

The next steps for reviewing these energy efficiency requirements are set out in the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, which sets out the intention to consult on strengthening energy requirements where it is cost effective, affordable, safe and practical to do so.
