Energy efficiency measures introduced

Energy efficiency measures introduced
In a bid to improve the lot of low income or vulnerable consumers who are struggling with the rising price of fuel, the government has introduced a series of measures to encourage energy efficiency.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has announced that some £3 million is to be invested in the low carbon buildings programme as a means of encouraging microgeneration in poorer communities.

In addition, the government is to publish the results of the heat call for evidence which, the government states, will enable it to develop a heat strategy.

Energy minister Phil Woolas has emphasised the need for energy efficiency in the home. He stated that promoting a low carbon lifestyle is essential to bring down fuel bills.

"Encouraging energy efficiency is crucial because it really does cut costs - especially for those who can least afford energy price hikes," he said.

This follows Gordon Brown's comments in the Guardian this week in which he called for the UK to become a low carbon economy in order to ensure a better deal for consumers, energy security and a reduction in greenhouse emissions.
