Why is the bill so important?

Reducing energy use in our homes is a key step in the fight against climate change whilst creating healthy, warm and affordable homes to live in – something that is not possible for those living in fuel poverty or cold and damp homes today. More than 12 million homes fall behind EPC Band C, meaning occupants are spending more on their energy bills and we are emitting more carbon than is necessary. This represents two thirds of UK homes. The Domestic Premises (Minimum Energy Performance) Bill would help to turn this around.

What will the bill mean?

The Bill will compel the Government to develop a more detailed plan of action to bring all fuel-poor homes to EPC Band C by 2030, and all those not classified as fuel poor by 2035; it will also require the Minister to maximise the adoption of existing, new and innovative technologies and to consider how best they can be utilised to realise the Bills aims.

This clear plan will encourage innovation, provide certainty to industry, investors and homeowners and encourage the uptake of sustainable, low carbon, energy efficient solutions.
