WEETF: Next steps for improving domestic energy efficiency and tackling fuel poverty in England
Edmund Hunt, a member of the Energy Systems Catapult’s Insight team, is taking part in a panel on ‘ Innovation and large-scale retrofit to reduce regional inequalities – commercialising new technology and materials and supporting skills development and market entry for regional businesses’. This conference will look at priorities for improving domestic energy efficiency and key issues for meeting the objectives in Sustainable Warmth, the updated Fuel Poverty Strategy for England.
Areas for discussion include priorities and strategies for:
large-scale retrofits and overcoming barriers to retrofitting on a national and local level
new low-carbon heating initiatives and energy efficiency schemes, as well as steps for translating these into business growth and technological and sector innovation
supply chain and skills growth, and tying in with the Government’s ‘Levelling Up’ agenda
It will also be an opportunity to discuss the commitments to energy efficiency developments made in the Energy White Paper, as well as fuel poverty and priorities for innovation in the context of wider developments, such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
