Eco-features 'should be encouraged'

Eco-features 'should be encouraged'
Builders should be encouraged to install environmentally-friendly features in new-builds, according to one industry expert.

Tim Anderson of homebuilder Dockleaf has claimed that the government should do more to ensure that domestic properties reduce the amount of energy they consume, the Hexham Courant reports.

Mr Anderson told the publication that developers should be made aware of heating alternatives and emphasised the fact that, in this way, consumer savings can be made, which would in turn increase the appeal for potential buyers.

"I believe the government ought to be offering serious grants to house builders to encourage them to install renewable energy measures in new houses," he said.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, installing insulation in a property could save as much as £110 in energy bills and one tonne of CO2 per year.
