ABSTRACT
The paper discusses the UK government undertaking that by 2016 all new homes must have zero carbon emission. Just what they mean by zero carbon has yet to be decided; and there is still huge doubt as to what part on-site micro-generation using renewable energy sources will play in delivering the target.
