Members of our team visited Energy House 2.0 Manchester on Monday with Barratt Group, to see and learn more about the mind blowing housing technology in the pipeline.

Energy House 2.0 is a specially-built climate chamber that recreates temperatures ranging from -20˚C to +40˚C, as well as simulating wind, rain, snow and solar radiation to replicate the climate in 95% of the earth’s environments.

It will research and test new ways of powering heating and insulating homes, whilst cutting water usage. They will inform the sector about achieving a significant reduction in carbon emissions for new build homes from 2025.

The homes feature a range of new technologies, each of which could contribute to lowering the amount of carbon produced when a home is built, and the carbon footprint of the people who live in the home.

It was great for our Business Development team to see Energy House 2.0 in action and experience the future of housing.
