Energy and Climate Change Committee
Report published; awaiting 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.
Evidence given by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, and Ben Golding, Head of Strategy and Finance Team, Home Energy, Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Evidence given by Dr Nick Eyre, Director, UK Energy Research Centre, Dr Jan Rosenow, Senior Fellow, Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand, University of Sussex, Simon Roberts, Chief Executive, Centre for Sustainable Energy, and Dave Sowden, Chief Executive, Sustainable Energy Association.
