The article argues for the need to consider regulation of decentralized supply of carbon and to deal with conflicts between zero carbon emission policy and legislation in Great Britain. Under the European Union (EU) Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, regulated emissions in new buildings should be reduced to nearly zero carbon levels from 2019. Centralized district energy schemes may fall either on the site-specific arrangements or multi-site solutions categories.
