Description

This publication relates to the Building Regulations 2006, now superseded by the 2010 Building Regulations.

The desire to exploit LZC energy sources is driving the rapid development of many technologies and these are increasingly being installed in buildings, eg. small-scale and micro-CHP units, photovoltaic panels and building-mounted wind generators.

This strategic guide provides sufficient information to enable the reader to decide if a particular LZC energy source is appropriate for the building under consideration and to estimate the potential for carbon dioxide emissions reduction. The guide comprises:

an introduction to LZC energy sources, focusing on building-integrated/building-attached applications

  • a set of calculation methods to enable the carbon dioxide emissions reduction potential of individual LZC energy sources to be calculated in domestic and non-domestic building applications
  • outline guidance on key issues for certain LZC energy sources where this is lacking in current literature
  • references to recommended performance standards and guidance information
