A friend who used to be in the industry told me that from 2016, new legislation will mean that new houses have to have ch from alternative/green energy. No more gas boilers.

Is this true?

What will they use for hw and ch?

Is the technology advanced enough yet?

Won't it be much more expensive to install?

actualy 2016 all new houses have to be carbon neutral
so it could be true
ground source heat pumps solar and wind
but to be honest
gas is still greener than eleccy

Every new home will have a wooden shed at the bottom of the garden.
Within this shed will be a mini nuclear power plant.

This has been coming along for a long time and it's also for oil not just gas code 4 for new build is already in place, which is the need for some sort of renewable on a house so big so code 6 is complete carbon neutral which is for 2016 anybody in the sector we deal in will be left behind if they don't invest in renewables now, had a chap that wasn't allowed to fit a system to a new build last year without either solar water or electric! So he left the front of the house and extended instead and swallowed the VAT.

From what we were told last year there will be no gas fitted to the properties though it wasn't clear when nat. grid could provide a metered supply.
