Level of confidence in energy efficiency policies drops

The level of confidence in the UK Government’s energy efficiency policies has dropped significantly over the past few months, a recent news report has been able to reveal.

Figures from the ‘Energy Efficiency Trends’ report by the Energy Efficiency Verification Specialists (EEVS) point out that, for the second quarter (Q2) of 2015, both energy suppliers and consumers are less confident in the government’s policies than they used to be the previous quarter.

Public buildings (21%) and manufacturing sites (17%) overtook offices (15%) in the second quarter as the principle property types to benefit from energy efficiency upgrades.

Ian Jeffries at EEVS said: “A notable theme in this quarter’s research has been the lack of support that the energy efficiency sector feels it has received from the UK Government.

“Interestingly, however, the policy landscape has shifted somewhat since the survey was carried out.”
