star this property answer text <p>Environmental Land Management schemes (ELM) are scheduled to be rolled out from late 2024, with a national pilot beginning in late 2021. Detailed planning of the pilot is in train. The pilot will run for three years and will aim to assess the end-to-end operability and deliverability of the scheme, and allow us to identify and refine any issues or barriers that occur in practice.</p><p> </p><p>To support the development of ELM we are undertaking a number of test and trials. The work is being facilitated by a range of stakeholders, including farmer groups, representative bodies and non-governmental organisations, and it covers a range of geographies and sectors. 47 proposals are being taken forward in phase 1. We are working closely with stakeholders to finalise these. Depending on the complexity of the test or trial we anticipate the first of these commencing shortly. We have received over 200 proposals for phase 2. We will prioritise those proposals that fill gaps in scheme delivery components, outcomes and land management sectors identified from the coverage of the first 47 proposals. At the present time, no proposals have been rejected.</p><p> </p><p>We are working with stakeholders to understand how much funding they might require from the Government to support the delivery of the tests and trials in line with value for money principles.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The test conditions in labs for domestic boilers assume steady state operation, weighted by full and part power measurements. The energy ratings given to boilers are therefore intended to provide a fair basis for comparison of the energy efficiency of different models. The wide variation in the energy efficiency of buildings that boilers are installed in and in user behaviours makes it difficult to consistently test boiler efficiency in real life conditions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Of the variables referred to, those that impact the efficiency of the boiler itself are the heat distribution system, comprising emitters, pipes and pumps and the user controls.</p><p> </p><p>Condensing boiler efficiency is typically improved by a lower water return temperature. The design, efficacy and maintenance of the heat distribution system can impact this temperature. For example, an undersized system will require a higher flow temperature making it more difficult to achieve a low return temperature.</p><p> </p><p>User controls such as timers and thermostats can impact when the boiler turns on and off. The rate of this (cycling) can also impact the efficiency of the boiler with rapid cycling being potentially detrimental to efficiency. User controlled radiator valves can affect the flow rate through the system also impacting flow and return temperatures and cycling affecting boiler efficiency.</p> more like this
