“Energy efficiency yet again feels like the Cinderella of Government energy policy” @johnalker @UKGBC https://t.co/CpM90t13nv

The UK Green Building Council has today responded to Amber Rudd’s energy policy “reset” speech at the Institute of Civil Engineers. John Alker, Campaign and Policy Director at the UK Green Building Council , said: “Energy efficiency yet again feels like the Cinderella of Government energy policy, at risk of being forgotten. Reducing demand has to go hand in hand with new generation and is the most cost effective way to keep the lights on, control energy bills and tackle climate change. “As a true ‘no regrets’ approach to tackling the energy trilemma, energy efficiency should sit at the heart of energy policy as a national infrastructure priority.” ENDS Notes to editors To read the DECC press release of Amber Rudd’s speech, click here .
