Energy efficiency is a key priority for UK government to address rising costs by household and business energy consumers. But it is also at the heart of action to decarbonise the UK in a cost effective way, maintain secure energy supplies, and increase business productivity.
The UK government’s Energy Efficiency Strategy sets out four key benefits of energy efficiency:
- It saves households and businesses money on their energy bills
- It promotes economic growth and supports jobs in the economy
- It supports activity to revitalise our infrastructure, contributing to a more secure and sustainable energy system and reducing our reliance on energy imports
- It is often the most cost-effective way to decarbonise
