Energy & Climate Change Select Committee Consultation Outcome

Post by ALEO Admin » Fri Dec 18, 2015 4:36 pm

On 18 December, The House of Commons Energy and Climate Change (ECC) Committee published the outcome of their consultation on priorities for holding Government to account, to which can submitted a response.

The report, titled Our Priorities for Parliament 2015–20, says that nearly 100 pieces of written evidence, out of the 239 received, considered that energy efficiency and home heating should be a priority area, including scrutiny of how the Government is dealing with:
  • Energy efficiency policies
  • Tackling fuel poverty
  • Low carbon heat
A total of 83 submissions raised issues related to the energy infrastructure and 93 submissions mentioned decarbonisation and climate change.

On 3 December the ECC Committee took evidence on home energy efficiency and demand reduction, looking at a range of proposals for future energy-saving schemes. A video of the proceedings is available to view online. See http://www.can.uk.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=722
