To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how much money his Department has allocated to funding home energy efficiency measures as part of the National Energy Efficiency Programme; and if he will make a statement.
Improving energy efficiency in homes has an important role to play in reducing fuel poverty and tackling climate change.
The Government will continue to support home energy efficiency to 2028, at least at the level of funding of the current Energy Company Obligation scheme. This will drive more than £6 billion of investment in energy efficiency upgrades in homes.
The Government uses a range of levers to meet its environmental objectives. For instance, a Future Homes Standard, introduced by 2025, will require new build homes to be future proofed with low carbon heating and world leading levels of energy efficiency.
BEIS will publish a Heat and Buildings Strategy in due course which will set out further actions to decarbonise buildings.
