As the Business Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee concludes its report on the issue, this breakfast seminar will gather policymakers, economists, and business to discuss the select committee report findings.
UK homes and buildings contribute substantially to the country’s carbon emissions and are in real need of improvement to reduce their energy demand and consumption. There is strong consensus that changing the way in which we use energy in buildings is the first step to meeting a net zero climate target, will play an essential role in the UK’s transition to a low-carbon economy and provide wider economic and health returns.
We will examine how government can take more coordinated, long term choices on homes, and look at the wider consequences of these decisions on climate and health.
The Chair of the BEIS Select Committee as keynote speaker, will discuss the inquiry into energy efficiency policy in the UK.
