Energy consultants raise concerns over Building Regulations changes

Proposed updates to the Building Regulations could lead to buildings becoming less energy efficient, according to energy consultants.

Clara Bagenal George, the founder of the London Energy Transformation Initiative (Leti), has said that proposed changes to Part L of the regulations “represent a reduction in the energy performance standards of buildings”.

In addition, Clare Murray, a member of Leti and head of sustainability at architecture firm Levitt Bernstein, said that the proposals “mask the actual energy efficiency of a home… they make the building look like it is performing better, when the reality is it could be much worse”.

Leti is a voluntary body of over 1,000 engineers and consultants seeking to ensure London becomes a zero carbon city.
