Woking practices


I read Neville Martin's letter (Letters last week) with interest. It is perhaps worth noting that according to the DTI's Digest of UK Energy Statistics, UK power station generation and distribution losses in 2001 were about 75% of their fuel input, rather more than Mr Martin's estimate.

Also, UK district heating has been given substantial encouragement by Woking Council finding a way to make district heating competitive with other forms of heating for local authority housing. And now Ken Livingstone has taken on Woking's former energy services manager - to help turn London into a bigger Woking, it seems.
