UK Lagging Behind Renewable Energy Target
Green campaigners were highly encouraged back in 2009 when the coalition government was voted into office and Prime Minister David Cameron declared that his government would be the ‘greenest government of all time’. However, it appears that delivering on this promise will be unmanageable after it was revealed that the UK is set to miss out on hitting important renewable energy targets.
Some time ago, the UK committed to producing 15% of energy from renewable sources by 2020. As it currently stands we only manage to produce 3% of energy from renewables which has led many campaigners to speculate that we therefore have no chance of being able to meet this target.
Because of this, there are widespread fears that is could result in energy bills rising further as we will have to continue to rely on importing natural gas at a substantial cost, one that will then be reflected in the cost of energy bills.
One of the major issues with renewable energy sources e.g. solar panels, is that they are out of the financial reach of many and therefore not a viable option. What is a much more affordable option is the installation of triple glazing.
Triple glazing windows were first popularised in Scandinavia where households regularly have to fight off extreme temperatures in order to stay warm. Combined with a set of triple glazed front doors, they offer the best insulation possible and can help you control the cost of heating bills all-year round.
They take the high-quality performance of double glazing to a whole new level and promise to more than pay for themselves over their 20 year life expectancy.
So even if the government doesn’t seem to be doing its bit to fight off the cost of energy, you can do your bit by replacing your windows.
