According to an article on the Press website today (here) E-Can may soon allow low emission woodburners in new houses.
This makes sense as the latest woodburners have very low emissions, and are
the only electricity independent heating device to use a renewable fuel.
Woodburners are carbon neutral, all they do is recycle carbon into the
atmosphere. The added advantages are they work when there is no electricity, and
you can buy fuel and stockpile it.
The Press is interested in hearing from anyone who wants a woodburner in
their new home. Contact details are in the article.
