This Bill seeks to define and promote ‘green energy. It aims to facilitate the development of green energy by:
- requiring a review and revision of the Government’s microgeneration strategy, including feed-in tariffs
- changing permitted development rights in planning law to facilitate the installation of domestic-scale wind turbines or air source heat pumps
- ensuring that any increase in the value of a domestic property caused by the installation of energy efficiency measures or microgeneration systems will not result in higher council tax or, similarly, in higher rates bills for non-domestic properties.
