The Government is currently consulting on changes to Part L (conservation of fuel and power) and Part F (ventilation) of the Building Regulations for new dwellings - with the snappier title of 'The Future Homes Standard'.
Back in 2015, the government chose to block new onshore wind projects - despite wind being a source of the cheap, clean energy we need to tackle the climate crisis. Since then new onshore wind projects have ground to a halt - right when we need them most.
Our planet has never faced a crisis quite like the climate emergency. Temperatures have fluctuated before. Our ancestors even survived an ice age. But this time humans caused the crisis. And crucially, it’s within our power to stop it.
