New reports show the UK government is set to invest up to £150m in the Construction industry in a bid to reduce construction times, improve quality and make buildings more efficient. £60m of that money is to be provided through the Technology Strategy Board in order to support the industry in developing improved energy efficiency in their designs.
Business Secretary Vince Cable reiterated the government's position to support energy efficient construction projects in order to reach the government's aim of reducing CO2 emissions by 50% by the year 2025, and claimed that the investment would bring economic benefits of more than £1.5bn.
Whilst the government's 2050 goal of reducing CO2 emissions by an enormous 80% is a steep challenge, this investment will go a long way towards helping the innovation required by the sector to help meet the target.
