Gas, plumber training courses could assist low carbon plans

Industry professionals who have taken a plumbing or gas training course might find that they are needed to help the government achieve its low carbon commitments.

Communities and Local Government announced today (March 12th) that changes have been made to building regulations in the UK that will see properties become more energy efficient.

As part of the new measures a minimum water efficiency standard for all homes has been introduced, as well as a requirement that carbon monoxide alarms will be installed when solid fuel appliances are fitted.

Commenting on the news, housing and planning minister John Healey said: "The higher green standards we're bringing in this year will cut emissions and play a crucial part in achieving our zero carbon policies. They will also make homes and businesses cheaper to heat and run."

The announcement follows details of the government's Warm Homes, Greener Homes Strategy that aims to provide millions of homes with eco-friendly upgrades by 2020.
