Explore low-cost solutions for reducing the carbon footprint of your home

Green energy is never far from the agenda when it comes to home heating, but the rising cost of living is likely to make installing new energy-efficient systems a daunting prospect when budgets are limited.

A walk-through installation at Green Living Live – a new show focussing on eco-homes taking place alongside Grand Designs Live 2022 – aims to show that reducing the carbon footprint of your home doesn’t have to cost the earth.

The low-carbon house, sponsored by EDF, is a single-storey modular home that visitors to the show can step into and explore for themselves. Designed by ModPods, which creates affordable modular housing solutions, it will showcase innovative energy systems that mean zero energy bills, with any overflow of energy sold to the national grid. The future-proofed homes will also be electric-car ready.

Grand Designs Live 2022 will debut the low-carbon house for low-income families
