Adviser claims low carbon homes may boost Welsh economy

Adviser claims low carbon homes may boost Welsh economy
Making homes in Wales more energy efficient should be a priority for economic as well as environmental reasons, according to one expert.

Nick Tune, director of the Welsh Building Research Establishment (BRE), has made the case that small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) should be able to take advantage of the need for services as properties across the province are made more energy-efficient.

The drive towards greener housing in Wales is expected to open up a range of business opportunities in years to come as various stakeholders intensify their efforts, the Western Mail reports.

In fact, Mr Tune is aiming to make clear to SMBs in Wales that focussing on sustainability does not have to be a painful process that necessarily involves losing money.

Last month, the director of British Gas New Energy Geroid Lane suggested that renewable energy goals will be much easy to reach if British homeowners are encouraged to make their own homes more efficient.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18590077-ADNFCR
