The housing industry south of the border – with a target of delivering 300,000 new homes a year – is being encouraged to catch up with Scotland in the use of solar panels for new-build homes. The call comes after Robert Jenrick, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, for the UK Government, published a consultation on the Future Homes Standard, which will see fossil fuel heating systems such as gas boilers banned from new homes by 2025 and replaced with the latest generation of clean technology – such as air source heat pumps and solar panels.

A new solar panel installation is defending a Ministry of Defence (MOD) site from high energy costs and safeguarding the environment from emissions. The Defence College of Logistics, Policing and Administration (DCLPA) at Worthy Down has been equipped with a total of 1,625 photovoltaic roof panels spread across the roofs of four new buildings at the new £300-million facility. The panels are expected to produce 413,307kWh/year of electricity annually and save the base almost £58,000 per year – personnel from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force all train at the site.
