The Carbon Neutral Business Zone (CaNeBuZo) is the UK’s first fossil fuel free business campus; it comprises seven offices offering low to no energy bills.

Number 9 Hoddins way, the prototype, has been occupied for four years, is naturally heated, naturally ventilated and generates more energy that it consumes.

This ground-breaking development uses low tech and low invasive intelligent design approaches – each building has a high thermal mass superstructure, an externally super-insulated fabric coupled with a passive solar design strategy to deliver potential energy savings of around £1,500 to each occupant per year.
