Energy UK responds to BEIS consultation on ECO
Responding to BEIS consultation on ECO and WHD, Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK,said:
“Energy efficiency delivers benefits to the economy, reduces our emissions and brings bills down for consumers - so we have long called for it to be a national infrastructure priority.
“While we have seen significant improvements and welcome plans to do more, both our industry and the supply chain urgently need clarity on the future of these programmes if we aren’t to fall further behind in reducing the number of draughty homes across the UK.
“It’s vital these consultations lead to the certainty and direction needed to get installation of energy efficiency measures back up to speed with fully funded targeted measures to bring people out of fuel poverty".
