The control of energy in smaller buildings is generally poor, despite the availability of a range of tried and tested systems incorporating both mature and innovative technologies. The installation of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) zone controls, optimising controllers for wet heating systems, and lighting controls are encouraged by the UK government. Financial support through the enhanced capital allowances (ECA) scheme and good practice guidance from the Carbon Trust is provided.
