Warm Homes, Greener Homes....

The Government announced its Household Energy Strategy - 'Warm Homes, Greener Homes' on Tuesday at EcoBuild

Its three key points are:
  • 'Pay as you Save' - Loan scheme from 2012. This tied to the property rather the current owner.
  • More powers to Local Authority's working with energy companies to deliver local energy plans
  • More regulation on energy standards, especially on private landlords
The overall aim is to reduce emissions from homes by 29 per cent by 2020.
