Rising energy bills, a tough economic climate, and a Government drive to reduce carbon emissions mean that creating an energy-efficient home has never been so important.

It is now easier than ever to build green, and achieve a house that’s comfortable to live in, economical to run, and has a reduced impact on the environment. Every year, thousands of visitors flock to the Big Green Home Show, hosted by BuildStore at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre, and this year will be no different. Building on the success of the past three shows, and the ever–increasing interest in all things eco, the three-day event will feature even more products, seminars and experts, as well as the unique ‘walking seminars’ by green experts. You’ll find invaluable expert advice on the essential eco elements to help you decide what’s best for your home and your pocket.

The UK is now the world’s sixth largest low-carbon and environmental economy, and still growing. It is no longer just a ‘wish-option’ to be energy-efficient. At this year’s Big Green Home Show, you can sit in on seminars and get one-to-one advice from industry experts on the latest legislation, regulations and Government schemes and how they will affect your project.

With the new incentives for renewable electricity and heating, the Government are essentially rewarding you for not plugging into the grid and the sums seem to be stacking up. You can find out more about the funding of your project from BuildStore’s team of specialist finance advisors at the Show, including the exclusive Eco Accelerator mortgage.

“At the Big Green Home Show, you’ll find plenty of expert advice and guidance on the essential eco elements you need to consider, and understand. As well as, talking directly to manufacturers and eco experts; our unique Centre allows you to see all the latest products and systems in-situ, in our three full-sizes houses.  It’s the UK’s brightest eco exhibition, and could help you save pounds as well as the planet.”
