Home energy efficiency and demand reduction inquiry


Government Response

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 investigates 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.
