The Government have put systems and incentives in place to increase energy efficiency in the private rented sector. The landlords energy saving allowance provides tax allowances for landlords who implement energy efficiency measures in their rented properties. The energy efficiency commitment and Warm Front schemes also encourage private landlords to take up energy efficiency measures.

When they are introduced, energy performance certificates will also provide landlords with information on what measures that they can take to raise the energy performance of their properties and the carbon emissions that they will save.
