The Department of Finance is to hold a series of information webinars on a recently launched consultation discussion document regarding the energy efficiency requirements and other related areas of the Building Regulations, such as ventilation, overheating risks in dwellings and electric vehicle charging infrastructure at buildings.
The series of seven online events will provide those in the industry and other interested parties with a comprehensive overview of the potential changes discussed in the consultation, which would support the 2021 Energy Strategy – ‘The Path to Net Zero Energy’ which aims to significantly improve the energy and emissions performance of new homes and buildings.
Details on the consultation, including how to register for the webinars can be accessed here.
The consultation period runs until Wednesday 15 November 2023.
