GCU and AppleGreen Homes are working on a project which they hope will combat fuel poverty – low cost environmentally effective housing.

The admission came from Infrastructure Secretary Alex Neil after three of the six biggest energy suppliers confirmed rises in electricity and gas prices. Scottish and Southern Energy, ScottishPower and British Gas have all announced big rises in recent weeks.
