TECHNICAL & PRACTICE - UPDATE

Grants for renewable-energy installations for the public sector are now available through phase two of the Low Carbon Buildings Programme ( www.lowcarbonbuildings. org. uk).

Phase one, which includes the private sector, is already running. Phase two offers grants of up to £1 million to support photovoltaics, solar thermal, biomass, wind and groundsource heat-pump systems.

The Code for Sustainable Homes replaces EcoHomes in England for new build in April 2007. EcoHomes will still apply to refurbishment and to Welsh and Scottish dwellings.

The Wales Institute for Sustainable Education (WISE), a new eco-building at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), will go on site in 2007. The centre will house CAT's MSc in advanced architecture: energy and environmental studies, which began five years ago and now has over 350 students enrolled.
