BEDZED

BEDZED stands for Beddington Zero Energy Development.

It is a mixed use solar urban village, and is built in London.

It was completed in 2002 and was Britain's first ever major zero energy development.

BEDZED is carbon-neutral, eco-friendly, and socio-economic, and develops an energy-neutral environment for its residents.

It has residential buildings and spaces for local businesses.

It has everything a normal community has, like nurseries and offices, but it runs solely on renewable materials.

For example, rainwater flushes the toilets, solar panels power the electricity, and it has low energy consumption rates. All heating water is recycled and reused.
