It's green energy but don't expect a cut in your energy bills

Whilst browsing the pages of The Guardian, I came across an article regarding a new project that could see an overhaul of existing housing in the UK including energy usage, water, transport and waste.

Apparently some of the UK's leading firms are joining forces with top academic institutions to help develop projects that will cut our carbon emissions.

All very interesting and well worth a few minutes of your time reading (click here).

One part that did catch my eye was that whilst the plan is to reduce energy usage and waste, households probably won't see a reduction in their bills as the savings made by the companies will go towards funding the estimated £1bn to convert 200,000 homes.

The report goes on to say that the team will also draw on "lessons learned" from the 2012 London Olympics where facilities are using the latest environmental technology.
