Domestic energy consumption has increased by 32 per cent since 1970 and by 19 per cent since 1990.

The pressure on the UK generating capacity is high as the UK attempts to change the way it generates electricity from fossil-based fuels to cleaner, renewable energy.

Materials with a higher u-value let out more heat, whereas a lower value lets less heat pass through.
