Government heralds energy efficiency revolution

A transformation in the way energy is used across the UK economy could help boost growth and jobs, and investing in energy efficiency could save up to 22 power stations-worth of energy by 2020, according to the Government’s Energy Efficiency Strategy published today.

The new Strategy is aimed at changing the way energy is used in sectors such as housing, transport and manufacturing over the coming decades.

Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:

We have put energy efficiency at the very heart of the Government’s energy policy. Using energy more wisely is absolutely vital in a world of increased pressure on resources and rising prices. Not only can energy efficiency help save money on bills and cut emissions, it can support green jobs, innovation and enterprise".
