Demand for sustainable homes 'will grow'

Demand for sustainable homes 'will grow'
It is 'inevitable' that the demand for sustainable homes in the UK will increase in the future, one expert has suggested.

Gordon Miller, sustainability and communications director of Sustain Worldwide, said that buyers will look for properties with better eco credentials as awareness continues to grow in the benefits of sustainability.

Mr Miller described raising the awareness of the advantages of sustainable homes as having a "two-fold impact", as not only will it educate those looking to purchase a new property, but it will also "compel house builders to construct homes that are ever more sustainable".

"It's a virtuous circle that benefits everyone and everything," the expert added.

He also highlighted that government initiatives, such as the feed-in tariff scheme, were helping educate the public about the "economic benefits of installing renewable technologies".

The comments came as Building for Life reported that 55 new schemes have reached its design standards this year, which is a 50 percent increase on the numbers in 2009.

Some 20 projects have achieved the gold standard, compared to just 12 last year.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800067582-ADNFCR
