    • The Buildings
    • The buildings are built using materials that store heat during warm conditions and release the heat at cooler times. Triple glazed windows.
    • All buildings have a 300mm insulation jacket around them.
    • Houses are arranged in south facing terraces to maximise heat gain from the sun, known as passive solar gain.
    • Each terrace is backed onto by a north facing office, where minimal solar gain reduces the tendency to overheat and the need for energy hungry air conditioning.
  • 6. Other Features of BedZED
    • Where possible buildings are made from natural, recycled or reclaimed materials.
    • All wood used has been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council.
    • Homes are fitted with low energy lighting, and energy efficient appliances
    • Meters are mounted in each home to enable residents to keep track of their heat and electricity use.
    • There is a combined heat and power plant, the heat produced by the power plant is used to heat water which is distributes around the site as a form of heating.
  • 7. Other Features Of BedZED
    • Some power is generated by burning off-cuts from tree surgery waste that would otherwise go to landfill. Wood - carbon neutral fuel because the CO2 released when wood is burnt equals that absorbed by the tree when it grows.
    • Green Transport Plan which promotes walking, cycling and use of public transport.
    • Car pool for residents to use – these are electrical cars. There is onsite charging facilities for these cars.
