Phillip Dunne leads debate on what next after the Green Homes Grant voucher scheme

Philip Dunne outlines the scale of the task ahead in order to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and urges the Government to work closely with the industry when developing any successor scheme to ensure it has the confidence of the industry and consumers. In his speech to Parliament he says “It is hard to overstate the scale of the challenge presented by the need to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. The UK has one of the least efficient housing stocks in Europe. Domestic properties account for almost a fifth of the UK’s carbon emissions. There are 29 million homes across the UK, 19 million of which do not meet the energy performance certificate C rating. Even those that do, in many cases, do so without effective insulation and so could do better. The Climate Change Committee has said that the UK’s legally binding climate change targets will not be met without the near-complete elimination of greenhouse gas emissions from UK building stock by 2050.”
