Plumbers merchant Plumb Center, part of Wolseley, has welcomed the green agenda set out by the Energy Secretary last week.
Chris Huhne, MP launched the Green Deal at Liberal Democrat party conference , promising to cut carbon emissions and create 250,000 new green jobs.
Huhne outlined a “once-and-for-all refit that will make every home in Britain ready for a low-carbon future. The most ambitious energy-saving plan ever put forward” .
He also emphasised the importance of renewable technologies going forward saying, “there is huge potential too for other renewables: energy from waste, wave, tidal power, and solar. Much of this will be local as it is in Germany.”
Plumb Center’s managing director Keith Jones, believes that businesses such as Plumb center have an essential role to play in the provision of energy saving technologies such as solar thermal, solar photovoltaic, air and ground source heat pumps and carbon neutral technology such as biomass boilers. “Saving energy and renewable technologies are vitally important, not just for the future of our planet but also to our industry,” he said, “and we welcome the Coalition’s green agenda.”
“We are also looking at the provision of renewables training, supporting our customers to become MCS accredited and ways in which we can help our customers to educate homeowners about the benefits of renewables.”
