Whilst we share the government’s aim of improving the energy efficiency of homes, we would like to see owners supported and encouraged to improve the energy efficiency of their properties, rather than compelled to do so. With financial incentives targeted at the worst performing properties we believe that significant improvements can be made to the energy efficiency of the country’s private housing stock.

We would encourage all members to respond to the consultation paper, which can be found here. The deadline for responding is 27 July 2018.
