CBI call for tougher Government action on energy efficiency welcomed
Welcoming CBI’s call today (Wednesday 28 August 2013) for a major push on energy efficiency, Friends of the Earth’s Head of Campaigns Andrew Pendleton said:
“With rocketing fuel prices, an impending climate crisis and mounting concerns about energy security it’s astonishing that Ministers haven’t made energy efficiency a top priority.
“Government efforts to help cash-strapped households cut energy waste have floundered and its flagship Green Deal policy is sinking fast.
“Ministers must stop dithering. A massive, clear and coordinated energy efficiency programme would create new jobs and business opportunities - and is the only credible way to help households and firms cut power bills in the short term.”
