Nottingham trials pioneering system. Social housing provider Nottingham City Homes has announced that it has installed the UK’s first ever offsite-manufactured Ventive Home heating and energy pod system on one of its properties. The system, part of an innovative whole house retrofit project, is designed to help create warm, comfortable, cheaper-to-run, net-zero energy homes by replacing conventional heating systems with a pod that includes renewable technologies, energy storage and smart controls. The pod stores and uses solar energy generated from the roof, and can access grid energy when it’s at its cheapest so that heating and electricity are provided in the most efficient way.
