Celebrating the Innovation Summit ACE2016 – Affordable Communities Everywhere

Held at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, the Summit provided an unprecedented opportunity to learn from, and network with, the world’s leading disruptive thinkers and innovators within the sector, as well as Harvard faculty and researchers, and select executives from the a?ordable housing and finance community.

WElink BHS was a proud sponsor of the event held at Harvard, June 3rd – 4th , where we presented BHS housing system and a looked at the some case studies relating to the growing demand for affordable and sustainable housing solutions.

Presenting at the event, Eduardo Aguilar Innovations Director at WElink Energy discussed the UK Governments estimates of the need for additional 400,000 low-cost housing units by 2020. This coupled with a looming energy crisis in particular demonstrates the need for sustainable , energy efficient housing to be a priority in the coming years.

‘The BHS industrialized housing fabrication system provides precisely engineered, low carbon homes that are readily assembled into multi-family developments on site. Scalable and sustainable, these homes generate up to 75% of their energy demands and area able to store excess energy for later use. Smart building and energy systems, public-private partnerships and a rapid speed to market will allow such innovative housing solutions to effectively address both the housing and energy crises in the UK.’
