This 1950's sold wall, detached house has been super-insulated to around Pasivhaus levels. As a result it requires very little heating. The owners say: 'We wanted to take an un-insulated house with a 60 year old kitchen, bathroom and windows, and with damp and mould, and turn it into a comfortable, healthy house with low energy bills and reduced carbon emissions.'

Built in 2007, this modern house has been adapted to achieve a Net-Zero energy balance. The house was built with a ground source heat pump and various adaptations have aimed to ensure the building is entirely solar heated all year round. A 4kW photovoltaic solar panel sytem provides 3.2MwH of power each year.

The house was built with a ground source heat pump and various adaptations have aimed to ensure the building is entirely solar heated all year round. A 4kW photovoltaic solar panel sytem provides 3.2MwH of power each year. The panels provide energy to the heat pump and inject spare energy to the large underground thermal store.

Hockerton Housing Project (HHP) is a self-sufficient co-housing development. Five earth-sheltered homes are built with high thermal mass and high levels of insulation to eliminate the need for heating systems. Residents of the houses generate their own clean energy to meet their remaining energy needs. They also grow most of their own food, harvest their own water and recycle waste materials.
