In 2014, Greencore Construction started using Hempcrete panels to build houses in the country’s most sustainable residential development, Springfield Meadows, in Southmoor, Oxfordshire. The homes are 100% electric, no natural gas.

The sustainable builder completed 25 hemp-based homes recently, and people have moved into them. The hemp-based homes run with clean electricity; some even have storage batteries and will, in the future, be able to export excess energy back to the grid. Three cheers to the builders and the homesteaders.
