Please help us lobby MPs to adopt two ACE Bills

On 26 November 20 MPs were successful in the Private Members’ Ballot. They will now have the chance to introduce a Bill of their own in Parliament.

ACE is trying to persuade them to adopt two Bills, which in their different ways have a key role to play in tackling climate change and fuel poverty. We would be grateful if you could help us lobby them!

The Energy Efficiency, Climate Change & Fuel Poverty Bill builds on ACE’s Fuel Poverty No. 2 Bill, promoted by Dr Alan Whitehead MP in the last Parliamentary session. It requires comprehensive packages of energy efficiency measures to be offered to fuel poor households. With official figures now showing a 49% increase in excess winter deaths since last year, there has never been a more urgent need to upgrade the energy performance of our worst housing stock.

The Sustainable Energy (Local Plans) Bill breaks new ground by giving local councils and citizens a co-operative role in drawing up and implementing local sustainable energy plans. These plans can contain measures that work locally, alongside requests for new powers and transfers of powers from national bodies to councils themselves.

Please take a few moments to email the successful MPs. Click “continue” to find out how to do it…

The 20 MPs listed below will be making up their minds in the next few days – so time is of the essence. Please take a few minutes to email them, urging them to take up one of our ACE Bills. The email doesn’t have to be long – what matters is that it gets sent soon!

Thank you very much for your help.
