UK must reap ‘huge’ benefits of demand reduction: Business Green Article by Edward Davey

DECC, UK: In a world of rising energy prices, pressure on resources and economic uncertainty we simply cannot afford to miss the huge opportunities offered by greater energy efficiency. That is why the coalition government is acting now to make Britain’s energy supply fit for the 21st century, helping to create lower bills for consumers, reduced costs and greater opportunities for businesses, and lower carbon emissions. We are already making real, tangible progress in this area. The revolutionary Green Deal will be up and running in the new year, helping households and businesses improve the efficiency of Britain’s housing stock by enabling them to pay for exciting and innovative energy-saving measures through savings on bills. The Energy Company Obligation will provide help towards those who need it most. And smart meters will help raise awareness of our energy usage, putting consumers back in control.
