New low carbon projects announced

New low carbon projects announced
Several new low carbon schemes have been announced in the UK as part of a Homes and Communities Agency's (HCA) initiative.

These will be the second round of projects funded by the government department and will cost a total of £8.8 million.

Plans include linking up existing energy efficient plants by creating new infrastructure across the country.

Individual schemes which have received funding include a housing project in London that will connect 10,000 homes to a city-wide heat network.

Other successful bids were for combined heat and power plants to connect zero carbon homes in Gloucestershire and Gosport.

Housing minister John Healey said: "Homes account for a quarter of carbon emission so reducing this is a major part of our efforts to tackle climate change.

"By making all new homes zero carbon from 2016 we are already leading the way to a much greener housing stock, and lower energy bills for residents."

The Department of Energy and Climate Change and Communities and Local Government have also helped fund the projects.

the fact that low energy homes are being reported is a sad indictment of our failing construction industry all houses being built now should be low energy it should not be newsworthy but run of the mill.
Every house Touchwood Homes produces is energy efficient and can be zero carbon now why is anyone building any other way
