In the Clean Growth Strategy, Government committed to reviewing the Building Regulations energy efficiency standards for all new dwellings. As part of a full public consultation for this review, we will publish an impact assessment of proposed changes, including a quantification of costs.

Government has also committed to introducing 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. We will consider this further as part of our 2019 consultation on the Building Regulations energy efficiency standards.
