UK Zero Emission Home Launched

A two bedroom house that apparently loses 60% less heat than a normal house, has been unveiled in the UK. The Kingspan Lighthouse generates all it’s own energy, estimating an average annual energy bill of just £31 ($60).

It does this using a biomass boiler than can run on organic material, with a waste separation unit that can provide more fuel, and solar panels on the back of the house.

However currently building costs are 40% higher than standard, though they will be exempt from Stamp Duty.
