NI roadmap to net zero unveiled

New buildings will have to meet “net zero” standards by 2026/27, and new energy grants for existing homes will be introduced this year (2022).

A one-stop shop for homeowners seeking energy advice, “a significant pilot domestic retrofit scheme in 2022”, and net zero building regulations for 2026 are all part of NI’s Path to Net Zero Energy, launched today by Economy Minister Gordon Lyons (January 20th 2022).
