Research report reveals concerning drop in number of energy measures installed in UK homes
The number of energy efficiency measures installed in the UK homes between 2013 and 2014 dropped by a concerning 60% compared to the previous year, research published by the Association for the Conservation of Energy on behalf of Energy Bill Revolution was able to reveal recently.
Figures obtained from the report point out that installations like cavity, soft wall and loft insulation had dropped to 661,000 in 2013/14 from 1.62 million in 2012, and the trend is likely to continue into the following year.
The paper blames the fall on the flaws in the government’s initiatives such as the Green Deal loan programme, which offers loans to households for installing energy saving measures. It also lambasted the decisions to relax the poorly designed energy efficiency levy scheme, the Energy Company Obligation, and axe the Warm Front scheme, which is claimed as the only Government-funded energy efficiency programme for poor households.
Energy Bill Revolution director Ed Matthew said the government’s energy efficiency policies are in free fall.
“As a result fuel poverty is getting worse and people are dying. The Government must make home energy efficiency an infrastructure investment priority to put the funding in place to end this scandal once and for all,” Matthew added.
