UK PM May Pledges Net-Zero Energy Buildings by 2030 (Int'l Report)
In a recent speech at the Jodrell Bank observatory complex in Cheshire, UK the Prime Minister Theresa May is reported to have vowed to slash the energy use in buildings by half by 2030, as part of her Government's Industrial Strategy. The PM also pledged
to halve the energy costs for existing commercial and residential buildings. Heat and power for buildings currently account for 40 pct of country's energy consumption.

noted that her government's Industrial Strategy would act as a "catalyst for new technologies" that could then be exported to a "global market for clean technologies."
The strategy aims to achieve net zero carbon from 2030, as well as set long-term incentives for retrofitting homes and commercial buildings. (Source: edie, Various Other Media, May, 2018)
