Elmsbrook Eco-Town, Oxfordshire

UPOWA, Brickability Group’s specialist sustainable technology product and service provider, provided a roof-integrated solar PV solution for 228 zero-carbon homes at the award-winning Elmsbrook Eco-Town in Oxfordshire.

Elmsbrook is the flagship first phase of the North West Bicester Eco-Town and the largest true zero-carbon development in UK. Promising zero-carbon homes, abundant green spaces and a thriving local community, Elmsbrook is a blueprint for the future of sustainable housebuilding and living. The highly energy-efficient new homes feature a range of cutting-edge green technologies to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. UPOWA designed a bespoke solution for partner Crest Nicholson and A2 Dominion Housing Group - a roof-integrated solar solution to meet the site-wide carbon reduction target, roof specification and aesthetic needs. The UPOWA Inline Solar system proved to be the most cost-competitive solution to achieve the project’s sustainability targets and delivered a considerable saving for the client.
