This online webinar session (3pm start) - will discuss the
opportunities and technical considerations of co-generation and Combined
Heat and Power (CHP) plants, and the savings which can be realised from
these. This is part of the 2degrees network (greener healthcare) so you may need to sign up (free) to access. Visit the 2degrees website for information.
The Government announced the
details of the the world's first Renewable Heat Incentive policy to revolutionise the way
heat is generated and used in buildings and homes. The Renewable Heat Incentive(RHI) policy document, sets out the
detailed arrangements for this scheme, which will provide long-term
financial support to renewable heat installations to encourage the
uptake of renewable heat. DECC is aiming for the regulations which
underpin this scheme to be approved by Parliament in summer 2011 and the
scheme will be introduced shortly thereafter.

The UK government policy requires that all future non-residential or
mixed-use developments above 1000 m2 should provide at
least 10% of their energy requirements from on-site renewable energy
generation. Wind energy produced from building-mounted wind turbines could be
expected to provide a proportion of this renewable energy. Putting a wind turbine on top of a tall building is a highly visual way to shout about green credentials, but minor changes in rooftop positioning can make a world of difference when it comes to actual energy generation. Built environment experts BRE have been putting their wind tunnel to
good use, measuring speed and turbulence over thousands of spots on the
roofs of a series of scale models representing high rise and medium rise
A hospital packed with green technology could become the most environmentally friendly in Britain, according to the primary care trust building it. The Malvern Community Hospital, due to open this autumn, is part of plans by the NHS to cut its carbon footprint - which is currently 3% of the UK's total emissions. Built at Seaford Court, Malvern Link, the hospital will include in-patient and out-patient facilities, x-ray and ultrasound, day rehabilitation and therapies, palliative care and visiting mammography and MRI scans. Its 24-bed £17.7M hospital will use renewable geothermal energy for heating, cooling and hot water. For more information visit the edie website
