Future Thinking

The Road to Zero Carbon

The UK government has set a “Zero Carbon” target for 2050 – a massive challenge demanding all kinds of changes. Already underway are Smart City projects around the UK, a new London Plan, a review of Part L of the Building Regulations and the adoption of SAP10 and SBEM changes. All of these policies will drive a rapid shift from fossil fuel based heating systems to heat pumps as the solution of choice for collective heating and cooling.

So join Future Thinking seminar series 11, hosted in six Smart Cities around the UK in November, where we’ll be focusing on what legislative changes mean for the built environment and how Daikin can support the forthcoming transition towards a zero carbon electric future.

Discover how the new legislative landscape will aff ect your design decisions. Join us from 6pm for a CPD accredited seminar, followed by buffet, drinks and excellent networking opportunities
