Two award winning Eco homes in Wales

by admin

The Welsh Passive House architectural competition has selected two winning eco-homes that will produce only 20% of the Carbon emissions produced by a standard new house.

The formal press release claims that ‘innovative designs, coupled with high levels of insulation and renewable energy, will dramatically reduce the need for supplementary heating, resulting in fuel bills that are at least two thirds cheaper than the average home’.

The two houses will be both be built at a former steelworks site known as The Works:Ebbw Vale a development by Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council and backed by the Welsh Asembly Government which, according to their website, proposes ‘a mix of uses including the Learning Campus, Local General Hospital, Leisure Centre and Sports Pitches, a Theatre, high quality offices and around 500 homes’.
