LENDERS Project Update
The UK Green Building Council has joined with mortgage lenders, building industry experts and sustainability bodies to a launch research project into building a stronger link between energy costs, affordability and mortgage borrowing.
Launched in November 2015, the LENDERS project is testing the use of EPC and other building data in estimating energy costs on individual homes and look at the potential to incorporate that estimate into the mortgage affordability calculation. In turn, this may help encourage buyers towards homes with lower energy bills, and increase their willingness to invest in improving energy efficiency.
This update event will be an opportunity to find out about the progress of the project and hear some of the interim findings. It will also be an opportunity to help feed into the project ahead of the final report due to be published in summer 2017.
This event is sponsored by Kingspan.
