Utility Week Live

House of the Future

16 May 2023

As the UK prepares to meet its stretching carbon reduction targets, increasing the energy efficiency of its housing stock is a crucial part of the journey. Utility Week Live firmly believes that utilities, and their partners, should be at the forefront of the decarbonisation of homes both old and new – so we’re introducing the House of the Future attraction for 2023, to inspire our visitors and showcase the art of the possible in retrofit and smart home solutions.   

In this dedicated session, our House of the Future partners will explore the challenges and opportunities of developing low carbon homes, and explaining how utilities and wider stakeholders can begin the journey.  

Discussion points will include:  

  • The latest innovations in low carbon technologies  
  • Learnings from key low carbon home demonstration projects  
  • The importance of retrofit   
  • The role of utilities in leading the change
