Presented in London by Rt Hon Christopher Pincher, Minister for Housing, the joint BRE and RIBA awards, mark the launch of this ground-breaking competition which is backed by cross government departments; BEIS, MHCLG and DHSC.

With the pressing climate emergency as a backdrop, the Home of 2030 competition is seeking submissions from consortia that can deliver sustainable homes for 2030. Submissions will be judged based on criteria under four categories:

  • Inclusive Living
  • Low environmental impact and building performance
  • Healthy Living
  • Deliverability and scalability

Six shortlisted schemes will move forward to the next stage, with the winning finalist going to build out phase with the support of Homes England.

The Hybrid HomeTM impressed with its promise of helping households to manage their energy costs and carbon footprint, without having to think about it.

Powered by geo’s energy management system, The Hybrid Home automatically balances grid and consumer energy needs; learning, predicting and optimising home energy systems.

Combined with any flexible load such as solar, battery storage, an EV charger or smart heating system, geo’s Hybrid Home balances the needs of the grid whilst managing the household’s overall energy consumption and carbon footprint.

“We are delighted to have our smart energy technology innovation recognised in the lead into this exciting competition and we’re looking forward to supporting this ambitious initiative.

Three other Innovation Awards were presented during the session in the categories for Building Performance, Inclusive Living and Scalability.
