Tens of thousands of Britain’s poorest energy customers could miss out on a chance to bring their bills down before winter – because the government allowed its flagship insulation scheme to run out.
It is about time the UK government got to grips with retrofitting existing housing to scale up home energy efficiency across the country.
There is now a huge opportunity to scale up this kind of building, while also bringing a decent living to farmers from a crop that is environmentally sustainable to grow.
If we rely solely on insulation, solar energy and sustainable architecture, it would take too much time to address the high energy use of buildings.
It would make a lot of sense to restore this old way of warming, especially since modern technology has made it so much more practical, safe and efficient.
