ACE Perspective

  • jennyEU 2030 energy efficiency target sends all the wrong signals to investors and means 56m Europeans will continue to live in cold homes By Jenny Holland

    ACE has reacted angrily today to the news that European leaders have adopted a 27% non-binding energy efficiency target, which represents a slowing of current progress on energy efficiency and will mean 56m Europeans will continue to live in homes they cannot afford to heat. Jenny Holland, Head of ACE’s Parliamentary Team, said: “We have long campaigned for a 40% EU energy efficiency target, which would have been the most cost-effective way to deliver emissions reductions, greater energy security and an end to the misery of 56m Europeans who have to live in homes they can’t afford to keep warm. “The 30% target proposed by the European Commission already represented a regrettable lack of ambition, amounting only to a continuation of current rates of energy efficiency improvement. But the 27% non-binding target agreed by Europe’s leaders last night amounts to a slowing of current progress on energy efficiency. It means that the opportunity has been squandered to lower energy bills for households and businesses by a whopping €239 billion each year by 2030."

  • DECCACE response to DECC consultation on a new fuel poverty 'strategy' for England By Pedro Guertler

    ACE has submitted a written response toe the Department of Energy and Climate Change's consultation on a new fuel poverty strategy for England. A strategy is widely held to encompass the following elements, elements which we would have hoped to see after four years of deliberation: identifying the nature and scale of the challenge at hand; setting goals to meet that challenge; laying out policies, programmes and actions to achieve those goals; and earmarking resources to execute the policies, programmes and actions. Instead, the consultation contained a series of important but ultimately small picture questions. In our response, we focused on answering big picture questions not posed in it.

  • Reaching Fuel Poor FamiliesReaching Fuel Poor Families: Final reports published By Sarah Royston

    ACE Research has completed the project "Reaching Fuel Poor Families", which was conducted in partnership with The Children's Society and funded by Eaga Charitable Trust. The research shows that Children's Centres can play a significant role in engaging fuel poor families, especially if schemes are long-term and work in partnership with other local organisations. The report makes recommendations for how local authorities, government, energy companies and the third sector can support engagement with fuel poor families through Children’s Centres.
