New Clause 7 - Energy efficiency aim

Energy Bill [Lords] – in a Public Bill Committee at 12:00 pm on 21st June 2011.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) The Secretary of State must take such action as he considers appropriate to improve the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in England so as to contribute to the Secretary of State fulfilling the duty under section 1(1) of the Climate Change Act 2008 (reduction of net UK carbon account by 2050).

(2) In subsection (1) “residential accommodation” has the meaning given by section 1 of the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995.

(3) Section 2 of the Sustainable Energy Act 2003 (energy efficiency of residential accommodation) ceases to have effect.

(4) In section 9 of the Sustainable Energy Act 2003 (citation, extent and commencement), in subsections (3) and (5) leave out “2,”.’.

This amendment will require the Government to achieve a 29 per cent. decrease in emissions of carbon dioxide from residential accommodation by 2022 (based on 2008 levels), through energy efficiency measures. See amendment (a) to NC7.—(Gregory Barker.)

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
