In response to the Government announcement on the ECO+ scheme, Energy UK’s Policy Manager, Louise Shooter said:
“Energy UK welcomes the government’s announcement to bring forward support to help people insulate their homes and reduce their energy consumption. As well as helping people save money on bills, improving energy efficiency will help deliver long-term energy security and achieve our Net Zero targets.
“The government is right to build on the success of the ECO scheme, however Energy UK published proposals for a bigger and voluntary scheme, rather than an obligation, as this would help support a more competitive and market-led approach to growing demand for energy efficiency.
“We’ve long been calling for a nationwide push on energy efficiency measures so it’s great to see the Government announce plans for a campaign to help people to make informed decisions about their energy usage and lower their bills.”
