Spending review 'created opportunities for heating and plumbing industry'

Spending review 'created opportunities for heating and plumbing industry'
The Spending Review has presented some great opportunities for the heating and plumbing industry, which is at the "front line of carbon saving".

Blane Judd, chief executive at the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), said the review offered opportunities to encourage consumers to invest in renewable energy sources.

Chancellor George Osborne confirmed funding for a number of green initiatives in his Spending Review, including a pot of up to £1 billion for the Green Investment Bank.

Some £860 million has also been allocated from the year 2011-2012 for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which the government claims will lead to a ten-fold increase in eco-friendly heat generation over the next ten years.

The Renewable Energy Association described the move as a "very big breakthrough".

Mr Judd said: "Because plumbing and heating engineers are at the front line of carbon saving, this is a great opportunity for them."

He added that the CIPHE also welcomed the move to continue with the sector skills council.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800136487-ADNFCR
