The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, published in 2017, set out its plans for a low carbon future and hopes for substantial growth for the green economy of the UK in years to come. One of the key areas of concern is how we will be heating our homes in the future. There’s a commitment to low-cost, low-carbon power generation and improved building practices, both for the new developments and our existing housing stock – by plans for effective refro-fitting of heating systems - in order make everything more energy efficient. The new Boiler Plus legislation that formed part of the Clean Growth Strategy, is helping installers and the public become more aware of the appliances and energy they use and raises the profile of energy efficiency, but there are concerns that things aren’t moving quickly enough. The roll-out of Smart Meters is picking up speed now problems with the first generation meters have been ironed out, so the situation is improving. We’ll all soon be able to make better choices about our energy usage when we’re keyed into new smart technologies that will help us effectively control the environment we live in.Back to Insights
