The article discusses issues regarding the changes in renewable building services systems, according to M&E Sustainability chairman Jim O'Neil. Problems with the grant system from the British government's Low Carbon Buildings Programme (LCBP) are presented. Also discussed are details of the cost and size of installing a solar hot-water system in Great Britain. Mechanisms of solar heat pumps, air source and open-loop water source heat pumps are also discussed.
