UK Government is not providing enough support for home energy efficiency, campaigners argue
The Government is putting people’s lives in danger by failing to provide the necessary support for deploying energy efficiency measures across the UK’s housing stock, The Association for the Conservation of Energy has recently argued.
The energy efficiency measures installed in houses has fallen by a “staggering” 88% since 2012, the report from ACE has argued.
The number of households helped with energy efficiency had “crashed” by 76%, while investment levels had fallen by 50%, research found.
Jenny Holland, head of campaigns at the association, said: “By making energy efficiency an infrastructure priority, the Treasury could transform the lives of some of our most vulnerable citizens.”
Jenny Holland, head of campaigns at the association, said: “These research findings are truly shocking. The UK has some of the worst housing stock in Europe, with levels of fuel poverty unheard of in much colder countries like Sweden.
“But Treasury help to upgrade our freezing homes has been slashed to the bone. The Government has pledged to make all fuel-poor homes energy-efficient by 2030, but without new funding, it will take them 94 years to meet their pledge.
“By making energy efficiency an infrastructure priority, the Treasury could transform the lives of some of our most vulnerable citizens, making their fuel bills affordable and greatly reducing the risk of cold-related illness.”
Implementing a very effective energy management system will also likely contribute to achieving significant savings and that’s exactly where the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves can really come in handy.
The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves represent a very good solution for the healthcare industry, where energy costs are 2nd only to labour costs. That’s because the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.
Moreover, it’s quite likely that the hospital could benefit from the financial advantages provided by the Government’s Green Deal scheme, given the fact that the HeatSave valves represent an approved measure to control radiators under the aforementioned programme.
