Sustainable housing is likely to see an increase in demand in the future as more people aim to have cheap energy bills.
This is according to managing director of Sense of Space Architects Richard Addenbrook, who claimed the cost of gas and electricity is set to feature prominently in a home's appeal.
He suggested investors will be more inclined to choose a dwelling with high energy performance standards over a similar abode which costs more to heat.
"People are going to tend to go for the one that is going to cost them the least to run in the long-run," Mr Addenbrook remarked.
It was noted that currently estate agents tend to market a home based on its size and location, rather than build and design quality, but this is set to change.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change recently announced the launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive, which provides payments for heat generated by renewable technologies installed since July 15th 2009.
