House Project has opened in St Ives Cambridgeshire.
Online PR News – 14-January-2011 – – A ground breaking initiative by Huntingdonshire District Council called the Green House Project has opened in St Ives Cambridgeshire. Tritechnology™ are pleased to have supplied the LED lighting throughout the house.
The Optech 40 and Optech 60 LED modules have replaced conventional 40watt and 60watt lamps in all of the decorative ceiling lights ,wall lights and standard lamps throughout the property. Tritechnology™ Module 10 LED has been used in all of the ceiling recessed downlight products
The Optech 40 and Optech 60 is a revolutionary, energy efficient ultra compact new light source, combining the lifetime and reliability of the worlds leading LED technology, with the convenience and brightness of conventional lighting The Optech 40 consumes just 7 watts and the Optech 60 just 10 watts. Achieving energy savings in excess of 80%.
All electrical, thermal and optical issues have been considered in the design, resulting in a light source that is simply plug and play
Optech 40 or Optech 60 LED modules can replace the conventional lamp and lamp holder within the majority of commercially available light fittings.
With this method the energy saving is truly sustainable. Optech is British designed and British made. Tritechnology™ is a registered trademark. If you would like more information about how to purchase this product contact Peter Malt at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Greencell technologies - Home energy use in the UK is currently responsible for producing more than 27% of all carbon emissions.
Whereas progress to reduce this is being made by improving the energy performance of new build properties, we must face the huge challenge of addressing existing, older inefficient properties, many of which will still be standing and occupied by 2050.
Such inefficient homes account for more than 90% of the existing housing stock, which highlights the importance of adapting them to suit 21st century living. Improving the thermal efficiency of existing properties will not only help meet the challenges of climate change, it will help householders tackle rising fuel costs, encourage well being and a provide a healthier living environment.
As part of Huntingdonshire District Council’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change, we have purchased two properties, which will be ‘sustainably’ refurbished and opened up to the public as demonstration homes.
In Huntingdonshire approximately 67,000 homes are privately owned. There is huge potential to improve the energy and water efficiency of the properties, which will help to reduce the district’s carbon footprint and bring existing homes up to a higher level of environmental performance.
The UK Government is committed to reducing carbon emissions by 80% by the year 2050.
If we are to reduce our carbon emissions and help slow down the effects of climate change we need a step change in our thinking – the way we live, travel and refurbish our properties plays a major part in that. It’s important for the Green House Project to demonstrate and influence sustainable refurbishment and to encourage a ‘low carbon lifestyle’.
The district council is working with the Building Research Establishment (BRE), whose expertise and guidance is integral to the project. The BRE will be providing the specifications for the improvements, which will be based around the results of extensive thermal and acoustic testing which has already been undertaken in both of the houses.
The Greencell technologies - The Green House Project will take a ‘whole house’ approach to refurbishment, starting with the building fabric and insulation, windows, heating systems, ventilation, water efficiency measures and the installation of renewable energy technology including solar thermal for hot water and solar photovoltaics (PV) for energy.
