Warmer, healthier, low-carbon homes
A large-scale, publicly-funded, energy efficiency programme is a four-way win. It’s great for the economy, great for the environment, great for energy security, and great for struggling households. It is the only way to end the scandal of fuel poverty-related excess winter deaths in the long term, and to protect all domestic consumers from the rising cost of gas. It is also the only major infrastructure project which can create jobs in every constituency across UK. It is hard to think of a better candidate for government infrastructure spending in the next parliament.
