Housing: Energy Efficiency

Volume 712: debated on Thursday 2 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how they will select the seven million homes to be offered whole-house upgrades with energy efficiency and micro-generation technologies by 2020; and whether priority will be given to the old, those on benefits, and those living in houses of multiple occupation. [HL4468]

We are committed to delivering our energy and carbon-saving objectives in a way that is fair and that enables all consumers, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable, to reap the benefits of the move to a low carbon economy. Our goal is for “whole house” packages of measures, including all cost-effective energy-saving measures, plus renewable heat and electricity measures as appropriate, to have been made available to all homes by 2030. We are now analysing potential delivery models and taking into account responses to the Heat and Energy Saving Strategy consultation. The outcome of this analysis will be presented in the finalised strategy which we aim to publish by the end of the year.
