A £330,000 investment from Plymouth City Council’s Plan for Homes, which explores innovation in housing delivery, has boosted an innovative eco-home scheme.

The scheme will be the first new-build scheme in England to use the ‘Energiesprong’ approach to achieve net-zero. It will also be designed using sustainable ‘One Planet principles’. Up to 70 affordable, net-zero carbon homes will be constructed as a result of the scheme, delivered by local partners PEC Homes (set up by local charity, Plymouth Energy Community).

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?
