In his Autumn Statement last week, the Chancellor Jeremy Hunt reiterated the Government’s commitment to pushing for a more energy-efficient country and economy.

Mr Hunt said: “We set our country a new ambition: by 2030, we want to reduce energy consumption from buildings and industry by 15 percent.

“Reducing demand by this much means, in today’s prices, a £28billion saving from our national energy bill or £450 off the average household bill.

“This must be a shared mission with families and businesses playing their part – but so will the government. In this Parliament, we’re already planning to invest, in energy efficiency, a total of £6.6billion.”
