Energy Efficiency Strategy falls short of expectations says UK-GBC

While welcoming the Government's acknowledgement of the key role energy efficiency must play in future-proofing the economy in its long-awaited Energy Efficiency Strategy, the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) said it was disappointed that the document did not lay out a clear plan to enable the built environment sector to invest.
UK-GBC chief executive Paul King said: 'We welcome the launch of the Energy Efficiency Strategy. It has always been clear that energy efficiency offers massive opportunities to create jobs, save carbon, slash fuel bills and help get the economy moving, and we are delighted the government has recognised this.

'However, what has been less clear is how to turn these opportunities into concerted action. It is disappointing, then, that the Strategy tells us much of what we already know about existing policies, but does not provide much new impetus to really drive investment in energy efficiency. What we need is a long term policy trajectory, together with clarity on how this will be achieved, in order to create the 'investment grade' policy that investors require.'

The Energy Efficiency Strategy is available here.
