Book Description

Improving the energy efficiency of the existing building stock is one of the biggest challenges facing the UK. The Government’s Green Deal programme has been put in place to offer a financial mechanism to facilitate cost effective energy efficiency improvements to dwellings.
This Information Paper presents the key findings from research carried out over a 2-year period investigating the effectiveness and financial viability of a range of refurbishment measures. These include air source heat pumps (ASHPs), external wall insulation (EWI),top-up loft insulation, new energy efficient oil boilers, photovoltaic (PV) systems and single room heat recovery ventilation units.
