London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/19/2015 -- Leading UK plumbing and heating company, South Thames Gas, have recently commented on the Scottish Renewables call for heating to be including as part of the building law in Glasgow, which will see all buildings with heating in place.
Scottish Renewables, a trade organisation made up of 300 members, has made a demand for heating to be including in the building law for Glasgow, so homes will all have low cost communal heating systems in place. This change would help reduce fuel poverty in the area.
Already cities in the UK such as London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool have these rules in place, but Glasgow is currently considered behind the times, and to meet 2020 goals of a more environmentally friendly world, more renewable energy alternatives are necessary. Currently the figure of renewable heat in Scotland is at 3%, with an 11% target set for 2020.
The policy manager for Scottish Renewables, Stephanie Clark, said, 'As a society, we take warm homes and workplaces and constant hot water for granted. But if we are to have a chance of meeting our 2012 targets, we urgently need to re-think our relationship with heat and the way it is generated, transported, and used.'
Often commenting on industry news, a spokesperson for South Thames Gas said, 'Heating makes life a lot more comfortable on those bitter days, and it's surprising how many houses don't even have heating in place.
The effort to include renewable energy heats is a worthy one, but it's currently not feasible for many, due to the nature of getting hold of the renewable fuel for burning. Hopefully we'll see more homes include it in the future, but for now boilers are the main source many have to use for their heating.
At South Thames Gas we can help fix or install any heating that you need help with, and we can provide the right heater for your home, so money isn't being flushed away!'
