The first of the super energy efficient wall panels will be craned in and installed on council homes in Sneinton this week, as work continues to make them greener and more energy efficient. This work is part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funded Deep Retrofit Energy Model (DREeM) project. This project will make 138 homes in Nottingham greener and cheaper to run, removing 513 tonnes of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Twelve homes, including five houses and seven bungalows on Keswick Street are benefitting from the improvement works that will increase energy efficiency and reduce heating and energy costs for residents.

Aberdeen City Council is eying the development of a solar farm following being awarded a chunk of the Scottish Government’s Green Growth Accelerator (GGA). The council has been given a share of up to £1 million in development funding from the accelerator, which is designed to help local authorities get low carbon infrastructure programmes off the ground. Four of Aberdeen’s projects have secured the funding, including a solar farm, the development of a portable hydrogen refuelling module, the expansion of the city’s hydrogen bus fleet and the conversion of its refuse collection vehicles.
