Urgent action needed ‘this decade’ for Net Zero
The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) has released a report saying the UK government is “failing to grasp” the challenge of decarbonising the country’s housing stock.
In its latest report, Energy Efficiency of Existing Homes, the Environmental Audit Committee states that the Government’s legally enshrined target to be net zero carbon by 2050 will hit a roadblock unless urgent action is taken to improve energy efficiency of homes this decade.
Environmental Audit Committee Chairman, Rt Hon Philip Dunne MP, said, “Making 19 million homes ready for net zero Britain by 2050 is an enormous challenge that the Government appears to have not yet grasped. In the next 29 years, the Government must improve energy efficiency upgrades and roll out low carbon heating measures: a material start must be made now.”
