Volume 473: debated on Thursday 13 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what estimate he has made of the number of homes in (a) Eastbourne constituency, (b) East Sussex and (c) the UK in which heat producing microgeneration systems have been installed in the last 10 years. (192127)

We commissioned a report in 2005, estimating that there were approximately 82,000 microgeneration installations in the UK, of which 80,156 were heat producing microgeneration systems. However, we are not able to provide a breakdown for the number of homes in Eastbourne or East Sussex.

We are currently commissioning further research to provide up-to-date estimates.
