The Low Carbon Buildings programme Phase 1 was set up with a key objective to demonstrate the potential of combining microgeneration technologies with energy efficiency to reduce carbon emissions in buildings. Phase 2 of the LCBP had aims to achieve reductions in the costs of microgeneration products; to see microgeneration products demonstrated on a wider scale; and to achieve greater visibility and understanding of microgeneration technologies by the general public as a result of their installation on a wide range of public buildings. We monitor progress against these objectives and periodically review overall effectiveness.

As part of the normal course of business we have ongoing discussions with a wide range of stakeholders about the Low Carbon Buildings programme.
