Creating sustainable homes for the future
Why Smart Housing? Housing is an integral part of the evolution of the Smart City. Never has it been more important to create sustainable urban areas which are designed for the future, whether that be retrofitting existing homes, achieving net zero carbon emissions to smart placemaking.
By utilising the Smart City mindset, the entire housing sector can come together to deliver the urgent need for more sustainable homes, designed for future generations to live and work together.
Join us on 17 May 2022 at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, where housing and smart city leaders, experts and innovators will be discussing what is needed right now to drive meaningful change and create communities for the future.
Topics up for discussion include:
Retrofitting our Homes – funding for the future
To meet decarbonisation targets it will cost in excess of £100 bn to retrofit over 24 million homes in the UK. How will this be funded? Will joint ventures be the answer? Can we hit our climate change goals?
Smart Planning – building sustainable communities
To address our urgent housing and climate crisis, planning for the future must have sustainability at the core. From inner city build, rent developments to new garden towns, how do we deliver multi-generational homes that sit well within the local environment
Future Homes – building and powering low carbon housing
The benefits of Passivhaus, MMC, modular homes, low carbon energy systems and more are well known, but should we be doing more? Should we now a working on future masterplan that sets the standards of how we will be building homes for the future?
Smarter, Healthy, Safer Homes – joining up technology and innovation
Should housing be a human right? We know sacrificing quality over profit is not a long term solution. How can the use of technology and innovation create safer smart homes for future generations?
