Funding for efficiency technologies announced

Funding for efficiency technologies announced
Research into technologies designed to improve the efficiency of homes has received funding from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB).

Funded by the government, the TSB announced a total of £6 million investment into technologies such as high-efficiency windows, energy efficient building systems and insulated external wall construction systems.

Half the funds will be provided by the TSB itself, with the remainder of the investment provided by participating companies.

Richard Miller, who leads the Low Impact Building Innovation Platform at the TSB pointed out that there were business opportunities in the drive to make homes more energy efficient.

He said: "The new build market in the UK alone is currently worth about £50 billion a year. And over 80 per cent of the buildings we will be using in 2050 have already been built.

"UK businesses with innovative technologies, whether for new build or to improve the environmental performance of existing buildings, will be well placed to take advantage of the growing global demand for environmentally friendly buildings."

The TSB is also to launch three new funding competitions this summer, including "Retrofit for the Future", which will support technology to improve energy efficiency and environmental performance of the UK's current housing stock.

Earlier this year Department for Energy and Climate Change secretary Ed Milliband announced plans to make all homes near zero carbon by 2050.

Without cheap energy of anything to carry out it is impossible. We offer you cooperation.
Investments for the organisation manufacture are necessary to us of ecologically pure sources electric and thermal energy.
1. These sources (modules) use filled, a net energy: potential energy of gravitation the planet Earth.
2. Sources possess the big individual capacity: 1 MW (electric power capacity) + 300 kw (thermal capacity).
3. Manufacture ecologically pure, corresponds to green technology, uses ecologically a net energy.
4. We will create to 150 new workplaces (in a current of 4 years).
5. And after the beginning of building of large power stations on the basis of our modules, quantity of new workplaces will increase in a geometrical progression.
6. The made Electric power has the cost price not above 0,004 euros / kw - hour, and thermal energy for heating of apartment houses is possible for the manufacturer is a by-product of process.
Certainly for business other approach, but cost for the population should be cheaper, than from any source of thermal and electric energy existing now.
5. Application of our modules for the industry has essential advantages:
There are no emissions of hotbed gases
Cheap energy will lower expenses of the industry for 20-70 %
There is no necessity for energy transportations on the big distances (that is there are no energy losses) - power stations from modules can be mounted directly in territory of factories.
6. For inhabited sector (a city, settlements) installation of modules near to residential buildings will allow to provide with their cheap heat and electric energy lost-free on transportation.
7. To decrease expenses for service of city heats-main lines (they more are not necessary), to decrease heat losses.
8. The city infrastructure will become simpler.
9. The cheap electric power this necessary condition for creation of a cheap and effective electric-municipal transportation without emission СО2.
10. Necessity of struggle against emissions of hotbed gases will disappear at burning of coal, oil – it is possible to refuse this fuel in general.
14. So it is possible to continue indefinitely!

Once again I pay your attention to the following:
• Cost of our modules in 3-5 times less than any sources of electric energy similar capacities.
• Hence and cost of power stations also in 3-5 times is less.
• You will not have problems with operation
• It is not necessary fuel
• Electric power cost is minimum for your population.
With cheap electric and thermal energy it is possible to realise any programs!!!!!!!!!!!
