Due to our unique dialogue with consumers and households, we have developed various policy positions that provide a framework for action that we believe is affordable and deliverable by government.
Energy Saving Trust’s views on tackling fuel poverty in England are briefly outlined within our new paper, The Clean Growth Plan: Tackling Fuel Poverty.
Our white paper, The Clean Growth Plan: A "2050-ready" new-build homes policy, makes the case for a more ambitious, “2050-ready” highly energy efficient and near-zero-carbon new-build homes policy and explores briefly how such a policy could operate.
Energy Saving Trust calls for a mix of new, smart financial incentives for home energy efficiency including grants, loans and tax (fiscal) incentives. In our new whitepaper, The Clean Growth Plan: An offer to all householders, we call on Government to announce such policies in the Clean Growth Plan.
This event will discuss the opportunities for regional governments to deliver inclusive economic growth through policies focused on low carbon housing and sustainable transport.
You will hear from leading public and private sector figures working in and with city authorities. Confirmed speakers include representatives from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, the Energy Systems Catapult and the Energy Saving Trust.
The day is divided into a morning session on low carbon housing (up to 12.30pm) and an afternoon session on sustainable transport solutions (from 1.30pm). All participants are welcome to attend for the whole day or the session that is most relevant.
Bringing together experts from local government, industry, academia, and campaigning organisations from across the country, this event will be of interest to senior decision makers and influencers working in and with local and regional government. It will be particularly relevant for those working in regional transport bodies, local enterprise partnerships, combined authorities, city councils and in areas likely to develop devolution deals over the coming years.
