Built Environment and Energy

The role of the ACT Built Environment Group is to gather carbon emission and energy related data for the built environment in Teignbridge. Our purpose is to propose realistic policies and initiatives necessary to meeting Teignbridge District Council’s declared zero carbon objective.

The working group will do this by cooperating with others, nationally, regionally and locally. Not only do we need to learn/share best practice, but we also need to bring our community with us if we are to be successful in delivering a sea-change in attitudes and behaviour.

Built Environment and Energy covers

  • Housing and buildings
  • New development and existing stock
  • Infrastructure, including all those associated with transport
  • Services and utilities, including primary energy generation
