Demand for electrical courses could increase with new government

A sector commentator has suggested that the new coalition government in the UK could be willing to push through refurbishment of current houses with green technology, which could require more workers who have completed electrical courses.

These remarks were made by head of advocacy at the UK Green Building Council John Alker, who suggested that both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats both seem to be in favour of smart grids and making improvements on existing homes.

This could lead to more demand for engineers who have the expertise gained on electrical courses and may be needed to install new equipment.

"We could see a fair amount of agreement and the fact that we have got a Liberal Democrat in place at the department of energy and climate change... I am taking as pretty good news," added Mr Alker.

Barrat Homes recently revealed that the new houses it builds have features such as insulation, energy-efficient heating and double glazing, making them 40 per cent more efficient comparable properties a decade ago.
