In this blog, we look at the latest advice to the UK Government from the Committee on Climate Change, which details a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to “net zero” by 2050.
Latest figures from the Internation Energy Agency show that electricity generated in the UK continues to get cleaner, with emission rates per unit of electricity at their lowest for over 100 years. The biggest contributor to this is the development and continued investment in offshore wind. In fact, figures show that the UK has the largest offshore wind capacity in the World, and has done so since 2008.
Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for rural housebuilders, however many developers have still never used heat pumps on their developments. With oil prices rising, and heat pumps becoming more desirable for homebuyers, we think now is a good time to scrap traditional oil and LPG boilers and make the switch to heat pumps.
Starting in Spring 2018, we will be providing courses on the installation and service of IVT heat pumps. As the official IVT distributor in the UK, Alto Energy provides technical support for all IVT heat pumps. In order to improve support available to customers across the country, we now offer training courses to installers and heating engineers in order become approved IVT heat pump installers and service-providers.
