The Part L update 2019: Building compliance with primary energy

August 2019

The upcoming Part L and Part F updates are likely to change the way new developments achieve compliance, as primary energy becomes the key metric for energy performance targets. This change could heavily impact heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) specification and building design. This is why we have created our new reports:

Staying on target – Combining nearly zero energy buildings and low carbon HVAC solutions

Nearly zero energy building - Primary energy compliance and our low carbon future

Towards the end of 2018, the Government announced that there would be an update to Part L and Part F of the Building Regulations before the end of 2019.

This date was not picked by chance.

The European Union’s (EU) Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) (which the UK must comply with regardless of our potential exit from the EU) sets a target for all new developments to be nearly zero energy buildings (NZEBs) by the 31st December 2020.

Achieving NZEBs in the UK is becoming a realistic target for new developments, as recent updates to regulations have significantly progressed the extent to which the NZEB criteria are addressed, moving new buildings towards energy efficient, lower carbon technologies.

The challenge in compliance comes not from the availability of technology to specify, but from the EU’s preferred measurement of this achievement: Primary energy.

What does Primary Energy mean for Building Compliance?
New developments in the UK currently achieve compliance through meeting carbon emission targets, which is helping towards the achievement of the Carbon Budgets.

However, with NZEBs being measured in primary energy this will need to change, and the inclusion of a new metric for Energy Performance Targets will be used to assess a building’s total primary energy use.

Primary energy may not be the only metric applied in future UK regulations, with the potential for other indicators to sit alongside it and with the EU’s eagerness for member states to have their own renewable energy strategy (RES) as per the NZEB definition.

However, even if factors such as carbon emissions and a RES are introduced to smooth the transition, there will be a significant change in the specification approach for HVAC solutions and related elements of building design.


Primary Energy and HVAC specification: A study
In the UK, Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation has a dedicated team focused on understanding the potential impact that future changes could have on the specification of HVAC solutions across the built environment.

By utilising the draft SAP 10 methodology and software, we have created a desktop study on how a compliance system based on primary energy could impact HVAC specification when compared with the current carbon emissions focused approach.

Combining these results with environmental targets, Government strategies and with consideration of key industry issues, we have started to consider how the industry can practically move towards our NZEB future without regressing any of the hard-earned progress already made under the carbon emissions-focussed phase of our journey towards sustainability: Staying on target: Combining nearly zero energy buildings and low carbon HVAC solutions.

This report is available for download and we will be holding seminar events in London in September to discuss the topics contained, alongside other key industry updates and information.

Glen Dimplex - Reinstating flame

February 2019

There’s no disputing the power of flame. It’s striking, eye-catching and enticing. But using flame as a design element and incorporating it into some spaces can come with challenges around health and safety, cost and building regulations, to name a few.

If you want to restore, change, or make a fireplace operational once again, then heritage sites have more challenges than most. Before the middle of the 20th century almost all rooms were heated by open fires. They can be an integral part of the history of the room and add to its authenticity. However, with potentially blocked flues, damaged chimneys and unusable grates, it can be difficult to reinstate the fireplace to its former glory and meet all the safety and building regulation requirements.

One way to overcome these challenges is to use electric flame technology. It provides the same authentic experience as real flame; a sense of warmth, comfort and belonging - adding ambience to a space and making people feel welcome. Developed to mimic real flame, these electric fires can be used in a variety of ways and offer much more flexibility than traditional fires.

In addition to the flexibility of electric fire installations, there are also other benefits. There is no requirement for a chimney or flue, the product is safe because it’s cool to the touch and the technology is energy efficient and low maintenance, leading to low running costs. Also, with no real embers there is no risk of a fire starting.

One example of flame technology in action is in the Royal Receiving Room at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Constructed in 1720, the theatre is famed for its interior and is decorated in a Louis XVI style. The dated fireplace was in need of a refresh but most importantly, it needed to be done in keeping with the décor of the room.

The theatre used Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation’s Opti-myst flame technology to provide not only a realistic three-dimensional flame effect, but a smoke effect as well. Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation added a realistic log bed and the real fireplace effect was complete.

Electric fires provide all the same effects as real flame. Flame technology can be used to bring back atmosphere and authenticity to your heritage project. The barriers to flame no longer exist.
