Home / Solar Power / Housebuilding rates unaffected by higher energy efficiency in the UK

The constant crap we hear from the economic whack jobs is that any government regulation, any centralized driver of change is going to destroy markets. These extremist fundamentalists refuse to look broader, refuse to accept the data, and refuse to evolve. That’s why they die off. And now, because of ignorance – new homes in England are at 71% of their 2005 CO2 emissions, while Scotland took that step and their homes emit 22% less pollution. That 22% also computes to the cost of owning the home. And most importantly – it has no affected home building AT ALL.

Looks like the economics of saving energy is smarter money than the extremists will let you know about.

SOURCEWhat is also clear is that since Q3 2015 when the new regulations came into force, the rate of housebuilding in Scotland has remained within its long-term range.
