Edinburgh Fringe Festival goes green

This year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival is going green by hosting a Low Carbon Property Festival.

The event, which has been organised by the Federation of Master Builders, the National Specialists Contractors Council, the Scottish Electrical Federation and the Scottish & Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation, is aiming to raise the profile of low-carbon building in Scotland.

Taking place from the 13-15 of August, the festival will feature presentations on future of low-carbon building, affects of Planning and Building Regulations on micro-renewable installations and grants available.

Energy minister Fergus Ewing said: “Events such as this support our mutual aims, and provide an ideal opportunity to educate, inform and, potentially, increase take-up of low and zero-carbon technologies. 

“Scotland’s households have already installed over 27,000 micro renewable technologies, such as solar PV and heat pumps in their homes, helping to reduce costs, save energy and cut emissions, but we can do so much more and I am grateful to the organisations and presenters for their commitment and support.”
