Schools, colleges and universities in the U.K. are being offered a new green energy option by Stiebel Eltron, manufacturer of renewable energy technology.

For the first time funding for its renewable energy heat pumps can be claimed by the public sector under the new government grant plan, the Low Carbon Building Programme (LCBP) Phase II. Under the plan, organizations can apply for up to 50% of the cost of installing approved green energy technologies - up to a maximum of £200,000.

Stiebel Eltron primarily manufacturers ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps and solar panels. Ground source heat pumps transfer heat from the ground into a building to provide heating and hot water. Air source heat pumps absorb heat from outside to heat buildings and provide hot water. Neither pump uses oil or gas.

The U.K.government has set a target of reducing carbon emissions by 60% by 2050. The average UK household produces over five tons of CO2 emissions per year with space and water heating accounting for more than 73% of this. For further information, visit http://www.lowcarbonbuildingsphase2.org.uk.
