Zero net regulated carbon emissions
The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018 defines zero net regulated carbon (CO) emissions as:
‘The annual building net regulated CO emissions (kg CO/m²/yr) arising as a result of annual energy consumption from fixed building services, i.e. space heating and cooling, domestic hot water, ventilation and lighting, also referred to as controlled services and fittings, as a result of requirements imposed on such systems by the Building Regulations. In aiming to achieve a zero regulated carbon status, the building energy modelling can take account of contributions of energy generated from on-site and near-site renewable and low carbon installations. Energy generated and supplied from off-site renewable and low carbon installations cannot be used to meet this definition.’
