2 Where is PVs place in the Zero Carbon home? Confusion in the marketplace Carbon: The new language First Step: Energy efficiency The Final Mile: carbon from electricity Photovoltaics Explained A simple building product: PV tiles A marketable feature for homes A lasting solution to Zero Carbon

3 Confused?

4 Part 2A L – Conservation of Fuel and Power Displacing 1kWh of grid electricity saves nearly 3 times more CO 2 than displacing 1kWh of gas Target: Achieving carbon reduction at the lowest cost Future: Cost per kg of carbon saved & ROI for you and customer Carbon: The New Language

5 First Step: Energy Efficiency Part 2A L Improves thermal efficiency

6 The Final Mile: Carbon from Electricity

7 Benefits Simple to install No specialist subcontractors required Unobtrusive No regular maintenance Can be integrated into the fabric of the building Predictable, consistent yield 25 year guarantee (typical), year life PV Explained Requirements South-facing aspect Non shaded site BRE OFFSITE 2007
