I definitely believe this is the way forward. It seems a no brainer to me that every new property should be built with maximum efficiency and insulation.

All new builds should have, imho, solar panels, wind turbines, highly efficient wood burners and geothermal heating. I'm sure there is heaps more technology out there that I am not even aware of.

They should also have windows that make the most of the warmth of the sun, keep the homes cool in summer and be highly insulated.

When you think about it, I'm sure the average home loses about 80% of the heat we put in there, just through poor design.

There is a type of housing in germany, I think, that George Monbiot mentions in his wonderful book 'heat' that are 90% energy efficient.

This has to be the way forward??

I agree, seems a no brainer to me.
