GRAND DESIGNS LIVE LONDON, 2009, SPONSORED BY BRITISH GAS

CAN WE BUILD TOWARDS A ZERO CARBON FUTURE?

MONDAY 4TH MAY 14.30-15.30 THE BIG DEBATE Can we build towards zero carbon?

Bill Dunster, Architect, Bill Bordass, Sustainability Expert, Neil Jefferson, chair of Zero Carbon Hub, and Ken Yeang eco Architect have been confirmed as guests ready to debate the issues of building towards a zero carbon future, at this year’s Grand Designs Live London, scheduled to take place at the ExCeL centre in London’s Docklands from April 25th to May 4th, 2009.

In light of new government plans being introduced to ensure UK homes are carbon neutral by 2050, new measures and challenges for planners, designers, architects and are bringing innovation to the building industry.

Currently, our homes accounts for 30% per cent of all of the UK's carbon emissions, so to help tackle this, the Government is proposing that all new homes be zero carbon by 2016. Energy efficient and insulated buildings, which draw their energy from zero or low carbon technologies and therefore produce no net carbon emissions from all energy use over the course of a year, will help reduce carbon emissions as well as lowering fuel bills for households.

Grand Designs Live, London’s BIG DEBATE aims to put the issue of tackling climate change in our homes at the forefront of the planning system and minds of consumers. The aim of the debate will be to raise awareness of the ways in which we can individually reduce our carbon footprint, and look at our personal home improvement and self build projects considering the way we build new homes, offering the unique opportunity for the public to join the debate and have their say.

The debate will consider how the government has set a target for all new housing to be zero carbon, by 2016, and created the Code for Sustainable Homes to support this target. Can we achieve it? Is it clear how we should go about it, and what are the obstacles? Can we afford not to go to zero, or should we be focusing on lowering the carbon footprint of new buildings rather than making them ‘zero carbon’?

Grand Designs Live will host five sessions every day, including a Big Debate between leading politicians, peer groups and opinion makers on issues such as eco and sustainable interior design, zero carbon homes and the legacy of London's 2012 Olympics.

The BIG DEBATE at Grand Designs Live, London will be on once a day throughout the 10 day event between 2.30p,m – 3.30pm everyday focusing on a series of subjects from eco Towns, Innovation, sustainable building, and architectural style.

Kevin McCloud, George Clarke and Diarmuid Gavin will also be on hand to provide a selection of masterclasses, offering in-depth advice on how to style the perfect home.

Located within the Interiors, section by the Designs Centre, the expert Grand Seminar Theatre sponsored by The Electric Safety Council.

The theatre will hold around 300 seated guests and run 5 seminars per day. Too see a full schedule of seminars and events please logon to www.granddesignslive.com.

Grand Designs Live, London is the UK’s The No.1 consumer show for design, innovation and inspiration for your home, and returns to London from the 25th April to 4th May, 2009.
