Responding to the Environmental Audit Committee’s report on energy efficiency, Energy UK chief executive Emma Pinchbeck said:
“As this report underlines, the UK’s legal Net Zero target is not deliverable if we fail to make our buildings energy efficient. As we outlined in our own report, energy efficiency will not only reduce emissions but save consumers hundreds of pounds and create healthier, more comfortable homes.
“Retrofitting millions of properties is a massive challenge, but the benefits are enormous too. We hope the Government will accept the Committee’s recommendations, and give energy efficiency the effort and investment it deserves in an ambitious Heat and Buildings Strategy.”
