Housing: Energy

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will estimate how long it will take for 90 per cent. of homes to reach efficiency level B or above in respect of energy. (270298)

The Department has not developed estimates for how long it will take for 90 per cent. of properties to reach EPC Band B. The EPC system is still very new, and there are insufficient numbers of properties transacted to estimate in a responsible manner a meaningful trajectory for properties to achieve this over time.
