This year has further cemented the significance solar PV holds for the future of energy generation, both within the UK, and across the globe. From augmenting the necessity for a green recovery as the nation begins to re-emerge following the considerable trials of the past nine months, to yet more indisputable proof of the toll climate change is taking on communities around the world, 2020 has offered further, vital insight into the obligation we all hold toward forging a more sustainable future.
From September of 2020, a new incentive labelled the Green Homes Grant Scheme will be made available to homeowners and landlords seeking to adopt more sustainable measures within their properties. The scheme is part of the wider effort for economic recovery, and will work hand-in-hand with the government’s continued emphasis on improving the UK’s capacity for sustainability.
The SAP is a vital requirement for new dwellings, put in place to ensure that a certain standard of energy-efficiency and sustainability is being met. In light of the fact that UK climate goals are likely to be hampered by homes in need of efficiency retrofits, using the SAP will prove invaluable to ensuring that your new build or conversion is designed to accommodate a safer and more viable way of living.
Solar panels offer a significant investment opportunity for your property, and both domestic and commercial solar installation offer numerous benefits, from creating a greener and more sustainable lifestyle to slashing your energy bills and taking advantage of the new Smart Export Guarantee tariff for surplus energy generated by your solar system.
In the space of a few short months, the world has been forced to reorganise itself, and to prioritise health, safety and prevention above all else. No industry has made it this far without experiencing the impact of Covid-19. From increased demand on home delivery and broadband services, to the temporary suspension of all restaurants and non-essential shops, businesses small, large and global have been forced to make unprecedented and unforeseen changes.
In a matter of weeks, every one of us has been forced to accommodate an immutable shift within nature, and to confront the limitations we have when it comes to maintaining life as we have always known it to be.
Since late November 2019, the rapid spread of a new and high-risk strain of coronavirus, Covid-19, has uprooted communities the world over as governing bodies establish strict regulations for the sake of cushioning the blow of a truly unprecedented global health crisis. From the 28th February 2020, when the first case was confirmed within the United Kingdom, the public and private sectors have been forced to quickly acclimatise to entirely new ways of living and working.
With the increased research on the environment and its changing climate over the last decade in particular, there’s been a lot of focus on the sustainability of the planet. If you work in construction (or related industries such as architecture and structural engineering), with the introduction of statutory regulations such as The Code for Sustainable Homes & Part L (1A) of the Building Regulations, we’re sure you’ll be overly familiar with the need to implement renewable energy.
