Ed Balls, Education Secretary wants all new school buildings to be zero-carbon by 2016, at a cost of about £110m over the next three years. (Guardian)
How this sits with Building Schools for the Future (which arguable should include carbon zero approaches, which after all will be the schools of the future) and what happens after three years, remains to be seen.
Good to see another target being set. Lets hope that the Strategy for Sustainable Construction will bring clarity and some sense of joined up thinking to all initaitives, codes, targets etc.
