star this property answer text <p>A number of independent peer reviewed research studies have concluded that there is no evidence of health effects arising from infrasound or low frequency noise, generated by windfarms that are built according to Government guidelines.</p><p> </p><p>For example, a comprehensive study undertaken in the UK in 1997 by ETSU for the Department of Trade and Industry (ETSU W/13/00392/REP) found no evidence that ground transmitted low frequency noise from wind turbines is at a sufficient level to be harmful to human health. These findings were confirmed by a study published in 2005 by the Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group of the School of Physical and Geographical Sciences at Keele University titled Microseismic and Infrasound Monitoring of Low Frequency Noise and Vibrations from Wind Farms1. In 2003 the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs published a report entitled 'A Review of Published Research on Low Frequency Noise and its Effects'2 and in 2004, BERR commissioned Hayes McKenzie to conduct an independent study to investigate the levels and effects of Low Frequency Noise from wind farms3.</p><p> </p><p><em>1</em><em> <a href="http://www.keele.ac.uk/geophysics/appliedseismology/wind/Final_Report.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.keele.ac.uk/geophysics/appliedseismology/wind/Final_Report.pdf</a></em></p><p><em>2</em><em> <a href="http://archive.defra.gov.uk/environment/quality/noise/research/lowfrequency/documents/lowfreqnoise.pdf" target="_blank">http://archive.defra.gov.uk/environment/quality/noise/research/lowfrequency/documents/lowfreqnoise.pdf</a></em></p><p><em>3 </em><em><a href="http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/+/http:/www.berr.gov.uk/energy/sources/renewables/explained/wind/onshore-offshore/page31267.html" target="_blank">http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/+/http://www.berr.gov.uk/energy/sources/renewables/explained/wind/onshore-offshore/page31267.html</a></em></p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We recently consulted on the rules for the Warm Home Discount to apply in 2015/16. As part this consultation, we proposed amending the Industry Initiatives element of the scheme to allow participating energy suppliers to have the opportunity to provide rebates to residents of Park Homes. Providing support to park home residents in this way would be at the discretion of suppliers, who would also determine the level of support made available. The consultation closed on 13 November and we are currently analysing the responses. We expect to lay draft Regulations in early 2015.</p> more like this

This would mean that participating energy suppliers would have the option to offer rebates, through the Industry Initiatives element of the scheme, to park home residents who otherwise met the Core Group or Broader Group criteria or have a direct billing relationship with energy suppliers We will announce the outcome of the consultation shortly.</p><p>This was necessary as currently we believe most park home residents do not have a direct billing relationship with energy suppliers.

star this property answer text <p>The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a statutory obligation placed by Government on the largest energy suppliers requiring them to promote and install energy efficiency measures in domestic properties. This includes park homes. DECC statistics show that 257 park homes have benefited from ECO measures up to 31 March 2015). These statistics are available in full here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/green-deal-energy-company-obligation-eco-and-insulation-levels-in-great-britain-quarterly-report-to-march-2015" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/green-deal-energy-company-obligation-eco-and-insulation-levels-in-great-britain-quarterly-report-to-march-2015</a></p><p>In order to be eligible for the Warm Home Discount, customers must be named on an energy bill with a participating supplier. We recognise that some park home residents will not have such a relationship with a supplier. For this reason, the Government has been encouraging energy suppliers to consider providing assistance to park home residents through the Industry Initiatives elements of the scheme.</p>

The map seeks to raise awareness of this potential source of renewable heat which can be utilised through the deployment of water source heat pumps supplying district heating networks and other users.</p><p>The map estimates the total heat capacity from the River Ouse at 505 Megawatts, enough to potentially heat 74,000 homes, subject to environmental and other location-specific consents.</p><p>Water source heat pumps are eligible for support through the Renewable Heat Incentive and heat network projects taken forward by Local Authorities can apply for support from the Heat Network Delivery Unit.</p> more like this
