Energy: Conservation

Volume 496: debated on Thursday 16 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what steps his Department plans to take to encourage use of energy-efficient circulator pumps in (a) domestic and (b) non-domestic properties. (285064)

Two energy-efficient circulator models are supported through the Government's flagship household energy efficiency policy, the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target.

Energy efficiency measures for households are also supported by a reduced rate of VAT for the professional installation of certain energy saving products, including “hot water system controls” and “central heating system controls”. Where circulator pumps fall within this description they will be eligible for the reduced rate.
