Ensuring Energy Efficiency becomes a UK Infrastructure Priority

We helped develop and run the Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Group (EEIG), to raise the profile of energy efficiency policy and help diverse sectors speak with one voice on the issue in the UK. 

The EEIG has helped underline the importance of investing in energy efficiency policy as the first and least cost step for the UK to reach its net zero climate goals and as an essential part of the UK’s infrastructure needs for the future.

The EEIG published its first report with Frontier Economics in September 2017. Many of its recommendations were taken up in the UK government’s subsequent government Clean Growth Strategy. The EEIG has also successfully campaigned for the National Infrastructure Commission to include energy efficiency in its first National Infrastructure Assessment and for an inquiry on energy efficiency to be held by the House of Commons BEIS select committee.
