The article cites two reports which made it clear that two particular green energy technologies are not the answers some have suggested in terms of moving to a low carbon economy in Great Britain. They include evaluations of micro-CHP carried out by the Carbon Trust and small-scale wind turbines by the BRE. In the case of micro-CHP, it is stated that the potential looks good for care homes, community housing schemes and leisure centres but offers only limited benefit for smaller, newer homes.
