Energy and Climate Change Committee to consider home energy efficiency schemes

The MPs from the Energy and Climate Change Committee have revealed plans to look into potential future energy efficiency initiatives throughout next week, taking evidence on home energy efficiency and demand reduction, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The Committee will explore a number of issues including the future of supplier obligations, tackling fuel poverty and the ‘hard to reach’, local authorities playing a greater role in delivering energy efficiency, addressing the balance between obligations, grants and regulations as well as driving demand.

It stated: “Energy efficiency and demand reduction is one of the most cost effective ways to cut carbon emissions, improve energy security and reduce consumer bills. However, the government has announced the end of two key policies – Zero Carbon Homes and the Green Deal – without bringing forward any replacement schemes. The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is also due to come to an end in March 2017.

“The Committee [will investigate] what lessons can be learnt from these and previous energy efficiency schemes. The evidence received feeds into our scrutiny of energy efficiency policies over the course of this Parliament.”
