In the UK, 27% of carbon dioxide emissions come from the energy we use to heat (and light) our homes.
It is not only carbon that’s going out of the window – and for that matter the roof, walls and floor – it is our hard earned money.
But imagine if we could transform our homes from leaky, draughty places that guzzle energy, into more comfortable, brighter, places – warmer in winter and cooler in summer – with smaller bills.
Imagine if we could do that without it costing consumers a penny, or landing a hefty bill at the government’s door.
And in the process, also create thousands of new jobs in green home refurbishment.
Unrealistic? Not necessarily.
The UK Green Building Council is demanding that the government – either this one or the next – should introduce a scheme that will kick-start this refurbishment revolution.
