UK government rolls out a new £6 billion package to drive innovation in energy efficiency
The UK Government has recently announced the launch of a very ambitious investment programme aimed at driving innovation in energy efficiency and tackling fuel poverty, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The £6 billion funding will enable nearly a million more low income households to benefit from energy saving measures, with flagship schemes to help reduce bills for thousands more families until at least 2028.
A consultation has been launched to focus the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme to tackle fuel poverty and cut emissions by providing energy efficiency upgrades and heating measures entirely on low income households.
The proposed change would allow 900,000 homes to have energy saving improvements like insulation and efficient heating systems by March 2022.
A separate consultation looks at the changes to the Warm Home Discount beyond winter, which will enable all payments to be made automatically and includes extending eligibility to people who receive Universal Credit – working and earning less than £16,190 a year.
HeatingSave – the most cost-effective solution for energy efficiency improvements
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave energy and boiler management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
