Municipal Government/Energy Company Partnership to Promote Energy Efficiency

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Budget 2006 announced GBP 20 million funding for local authorities over two years for promoting energy efficiency in partnership with energy companies. This was intended to assist local authorities in delivering their Home Energy Conservation Act commitments, with GBP 5 million being made available in the first 12 months and GBP 15 million the year after. The 1995 Home Energy Conservation Act required every local authority with housing responsibilities to report to government annually on their domestic energy efficiency activities. The reports set out cost-effective measures that will significantly improve the energy efficiency of all residential accommodation in their area and the progress made in implementing the measures.
