Draft PPS 18: Renewable Energy
Policy RE 2: Justification & Amplification
4.28. As part of its overall efforts to promote renewable energy and carbon efficiency, the Government wishes to facilitate and encourage greater integration of renewable energy technologies, both in the design of new buildings and through the appropriate retrofitting of such technologies to existing buildings. For many buildings this will mean increased consideration of the benefits of small-scale renewable energy technologies (often referred to as ‘micro-generation’). In addition it will entail greater consideration of complementary measures in the design of new buildings, such as the application of Passive Solar Design principles, to help achieve energy gains.
