We are very excited to be part of the 2022 Grand Designs Live event at the ExCel in London, starting at the end of this month, partnering with the revolutionary ModPods International.
Grand Designs Live 2022 is returning for the first time since 2019 and features a whole new section called Green Living Live – a show dedicated to showcasing eco-friendly products and services from companies that put sustainability at the heart of their business.
Visitors to the event will be able to walk through a ready-made single storey modular home. An affordable, low carbon, zero-energy bills, “Home of the Future”.
The ModPod Zero low-carbon home, in partnership with EDF, will feature within the brand-new Green Living Live show, and is a perfect innovative housing solution for low-income families and can be supplied to councils and housing associations.
The Zero home concept is designed to provide residents with zero heating bills, with any additional overflow of energy to be sold to the national grid. This overflow could then be used as a source of income for the council or housing association.
We are delighted to have our smart hot water cylinder available to see as part of this innovative, green, and future thinking home, sitting alongside PV panels and solar batteries from Solarwatt, a wastewater heat recovery system from Showersave, and the Infra-red heating technology from Energy Carbon.
"We have formed a collaboration of forward-thinking companies alongside the increasingly successful Modpods International modular housing developer, who wish to make a real positive difference to low carbon social housing construction in the UK. The aim of this collaboration is to create a one-stop shop of low carbon modular housing that meets the needs of ever more sustainably focused local councils and housing associations and to make a positive impact on the UK’s net zero journey within new buildings" James Hoople,Business Development Manager, Mixergy
As part of the event, James Hoople will be presenting as part of a speaker session.
James adds: “I will be talking about the changing face of energy generation & markets in the UK, the wasteful nature of current hot water systems and what Mixergy are doing to support a smarter grid by using more of the renewable power coming online both locally and at a grid level and to reduce the amounts of power currently being used in home to generate hot water”
Throughout the event, there will be a Grand Designs Complete Home Makeover competition whereby one lucky winner will receive a Mixergy smart hot water cylinder of their choice to help lower their hot water bills and connect to any heat source(s). Definitely not a competition you’d want to miss!
The event runs from 30th April to 8th May 2022 at the ExCel in London.
