    Reaction to law that UK will end net contribution to climate change by 2050

    Following Prime Minster Theresa May's announcement in the House of Commons yesterday that amendments to the UK's Climate Change Act will set the country on a course to eradicate its net contribution to climate change by 2050, the move has been broadly welcomed by a range of interest groups - many pleased at the scale of its ambition to set the UK on a path to become the world's first major economy to set net zero emissions target in law, but others disappointed that the law will be reviewed every five years. Here's the range of comment received that Environment Times has received ......

Air source heat pumps now a viable alternative

Heating UK homes with air source heat pumps is now a viable and credible alternative to traditional methods and can help to combat rising energy bills through greater efficiency.

envirogy ecodanEnvirogy Renewables are here to help you do just that – Introducing the Mitsubishi Ecodan Air Source Heat Pump.

Ecodan provides a proven, efficient way of heating homes. The Government's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) will now pay for the generation of renewable heat through the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). See our Funding page on our website for full information on how you can benefit now.

In recognition of Ecodan's status as a low carbon technology, the cost of VAT is reduced to 5% as opposed to the standard rate of VAT applicable on all traditional heating systems.

By using an Ecodan to provide space heating and hot water, it is possible to reduce a home's CO2 emissions and running costs.

Ecodan uses inverter-driven heat pump technology to harvest and upgrade free, renewable energy from the outdoor air to deliver heating and hot water, even in temperatures as low as -25°C. For every 1kW of electrical input energy, Ecodan harvests and upgrades renewable heat from the outdoor air to provide the home with an average of at least 3.2kW of heat output.

Why air source heat pumps and why now?
With space heating and hot water accounting for almost three quarters of the total energy consumed in UK homes, domestic heating is an obvious area to target to help combat rising energy bills.

Increasingly tough legislation is driving the demand for improved energy efficiency in the home, with the UK Government committed to reducing CO2 emissions by 80% from 1990 levels, by 2050. This means a reduction of at least 34% in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.

It's clear that to achieve these ambitious goals, our approach to energy use and the way we heat our homes has to change. Pivotal to this change is improved energy efficiency and a greater use of renewable energy.

Air source heat pumps use free renewable energy from the outside air and upgrade it for use in the home.

envirogyWhy Ecodan air source heat pumps are an ideal alternative to traditional heating
Recognised as a renewable technology by both UK and EU Governments, heat pumps provide an effective, energy efficient alternative to traditional heating systems. Ecodan uses advanced technology to heat homes and hot water using energy absorbed from the outdoor air.

As perhaps the single most important renewable solution, heat pumps are an established, proven technology, supported by Government incentives, economically viable and flexible in their application for domestic heating.

Significantly, the Committee on Climate Change recognise that heat pumps could meet up to 75% of the total residential heat demand in the UK.

Over the last decade continual developments and major advances such as the introduction of variable capacity control have helped to position Ecodan air source heat pumps as the market leader.

Mitsubishi Electric has now introduced advanced controls to ease use along with a quality-assured, British-built cylinder which can reduce installation time and costs.
