Our comments on Zero Carbon Homes

Tom Thackray, CBI Energy and Infrastructure Director, said:

“This report on Zero Carbon Homes is a sobering account of missed opportunities, particularly for consumers who could be saving more than £200 each year on their energy costs.

“The Government’s 2016 decision to scrap its Zero Carbon Home policy sent the wrong message to business and consumers about its commitment to reduce carbon emissions from buildings.

“With a Spending Review planned for later this year, it is crucial the Government fills this gap, while also outlining how a long-term framework for decarbonising heating in buildings can be established.”
