Says a Westminster government announcement: “The purpose of this letter is to clarify the implementation of the requirements for nearly zero energy buildings for new buildings with respect to Regulation 25B of the Building Regulations 2010 (with the exception of new buildings owned and occupied by public authorities, which were required to be nearly zero energy buildings from 1 January 2019.”

It goes on: “Regulation 25B states: ‘Where a building is erected, it must be a nearly zero energy building’.
