The new Ecohomes Show is part of The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC 22nd to 25th March and aspires to help us with our efforts to win the â€˜Green Warâ€™ in our homes.
Our homes are currently responsible for 30% of all UK emissions and the Government is aiming for carbon-neutral houses by 2016, but is this a realistic target?
How can we do our bit to create energy-efficient homes whilst producing energy for heating, hot water and electricity using only eco-friendly on-site technology?
Climate change is something we are all concerned about as the evidence of its increasing affect on our planet becomes obvious both at home and abroad.
We can personally do something to reverse this potential catastrophe by making our homes more energy efficient, which could dramatically reduce the amount of harmful carbon dioxide gas we release into the atmosphere.
This Autumn B&Q will make it easy to save energy around your house with its practical and exciting new range of energy efficient products, including wind turbines, solar panels and innovative heating and insulation products.
Sharp Electronics, the global leaders in solar cell manufacture, have enhanced their solar power systems, to the extent that they can now provide an efficient solution even in cloudier climates.
Since solar power depends on the intensity of light, not necessarily direct sunlight, the Sharp solar panels efficiently convert the sunâ€™s energy into a cleaner, more sustainable and almost infinite source of electricity for your home.
Fitting the Sharp solar panels will substantially cut your energy bills, increase your self-sufficiency and help you make your contribution to preserving the environment.
