The Homebuilding & Renovating Show returns to ExCeL London in September and will include two new features to help you take control of your energy use.

Soaring energy price rises have led to energy regulator Ofgem warning homeowners of a “very challenging winter” ahead, and to help you get the best advice for your home you’ll be able to ask our experts at the London show about the best ways to maximise your energy use. 

To support the UK’s first National Home Energy Week, we are launching the brand-new Home Energy Academy and Home Energy Hour. These sessions will give you the opportunity to ask questions such as "how could my home benefit from new insulation?" and to learn more about where your home loses the most heat.

And you can get two free tickets worth £36 to the next Homebuilding & Renovating Show at ExCel London (30 Sep-2 Oct), when you register before the event. 

Discover expert energy saving tips

With all-new theatre sessions and eco-energy focused experts in attendance, there's no better place than the London Homebuilding Show to figure out your home energy goals.

Home Energy Academy 

The Home Energy Academy will be available at our Advice Centre, where you can book in a one-on-one consultant with industry-leading home energy experts to help you to understand how you can make the most of the energy in your home, save money on your bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Our experts will cut through the hype, debunk the myths and offer pragmatic and realistic solutions for homeowners. They'll also be able to advise on home improvements such as underfloor heating, solar panels and retrofitting to improve the energy efficiency of older homes.

You’ll also be able to check out a programme of live events showcasing the best energy saving tips.

Home Energy Hour

On each of the three show days, expert speakers will share their knowledge during Home Energy Hour on lowering energy usage in our homes. 

David Hilton, an authority in sustainable building and energy efficiency, is one of the experts who will be on hand to discuss building fabrics, heating systems, heat recovery ventilation and much more. His talk: "Upgrading your heating system: How to make the right choices when renovating, extending or updating" will run on all three days.

Home Energy Hour sessions are 30-45 minutes each and will repeat daily.
