A low energy home-building project with energy systems designed and modelled by Carbon Free Group is one of five case studies collaborating with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on its “Building for 2050” research project.

The development of 47 new homes is currently under construction at Priors Hall Park in Corby, Northamptonshire and uses a unique combination of technologies to reduce energy use to such an extent that every home will all be an ultra-low energy user and, in some circumstances, may mean no energy bills at all for residents.

Carbon Free Group has been working on the project since its conception, providing insights into new energy opportunities, helping to inform the design and build system methodology and working closely with site developer Project Etopia and project partner Caplin Solar to deliver maximum energy efficiencies and ensure minimum energy use across all aspects of the development.

Electricity, heating and hot water are generated by the homes themselves using a range of technologies including solar photovoltaic and thermal panels, heat pumps, inter-seasonal heat storage and battery technologies. These are all optimised by a discreet smart home energy management system.

Carbon Free Group chief technology officer Anthony Morgan said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with BEIS on the Building for 2050 research project. Our approach to the sustainability elements of the project through the implementation of the Home Quality Mark and M&E design including; energy storage and building management to analyse how the 47 Corby homes will be using energy will enable much more efficient management of all the technologies in the properties. It will mean electricity, heat and hot water usage will be at very low cost in the homes, and potentially zero cost depending on energy usage.”
