Renewable energy companies like Eco living are helping the Scottish Government meet their renewable energy Scotland targets. Climate change, peak oil, high oil prices and increased government support are helping drive beneficial renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization. The aim is for the nation to be a renewable energy Scotland by 2020 with renewable sources generating the equivalent of 100% of Scotland’s gross annual electricity and a milestone of 31% by 2011. Another target for 2020 is for renewable s sources to provide the equivalent of 11% of Scotland’s heat demand. Scottish ministers are not the only ones backing the target it has been endorsed by industry leaders such as renewable energy companies. They believe the target is ambitious but achievable.
The company inspires to be like the Scandinavians who have been leading eco-friendly solutions since the 1970′s. Heat pump systems transfer thermal energy from one source to another that is of higher temperature than the original source.Unlike other heating systems, heat pump systems can also be used for cooling; the operation is run in reverse. Another advantage of heat pumps is that they are more energy efficient than oil and gas boilers.
