The Department of Energy & Climate Change have released new guidance which is hoped will help local authorities in England improve the energy efficiency of their residential housing.
Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:
“Local authorities have a vital role to play in improving the energy efficiency of residential homes in their areas, and helping us meet our ambitious energy targets”.
“This new robust guidance will support and encourage all local authorities to realise the significant benefits of upgrading homes. The Green Deal will be a fantastic tool to help with this, and I look forward to hearing how local authorities are using it to enable people to save energy and money”.
