Energy UK responds to EEIG Better Buildings Plan

Commenting on the Energy Efficiency Investment Group’s (EEIG) Better Buildings Investment Plan, Energy UK’s chief executive, Emma Pinchbeck said:

"Upgrading our homes to be energy efficient is essential for reaching the Net Zero target as well as delivering a host of other benefits like reduced bills, improved health and economic growth.

“The EEIG highlights the potential payback - reducing household expenditure by £7.5 billion, supporting 190,000 jobs, and putting £2 back into the economy for every £1 spent on a national retrofit strategy.

“The Government must now commit to funding long-term infrastructure programmes that will support customers through these changes and give businesses the confidence to invest, develop supply chains and train up the skilled workforce needed to deliver this.”
