Our response to Energy & Climate Change Committee’s inquiry into home energy efficiency and demand reduction
The Energy & Climate Change Committee says that energy efficiency and demand reduction is one of the most cost effective ways to cut carbon emissions, improve energy security and reduce consumer bills. It adds that the Government has announced the end of two key policies – Zero Carbon Homes and the Green Deal – without bringing forward any replacement schemes – and that the Energy Company Obligation is also due to come to an end in March 2017.
The Committee is investigating what lessons can be learnt from these and previous energy efficiency schemes. The evidence received will feed into its scrutiny of energy efficiency policies over the course of this Parliament.
ACE has submitted its written evidence, highlighting the successes of past programmes, the weaknesses of recent schemes and lessons that can be learned from them, including lessons from the US and elsewhere in Europe.
