The project is relevant to approximately 3,000 buildings across Wales that are used as places of worship and for other community gatherings. Very many of these buildings are recognised as being of historic and/or architectural interest and thus the aims have to take into account this very significant constraint. The objectives are:
• Reduction in energy consumption
• Increase in the use of low carbon and/or renewable energy
• Render the buildings more comfortable in winter and thus increase use
• Provide a heating system that respects the building and its contents.
