The GGF’s Chief Executive, Nigel Rees, believes that the installation of energy efficient glazing can help to create more energy efficient housing in Britain

In its letter of response, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) welcomed DECC’s proposed moves towards ensuring energy efficiency targets are met.

However, it informed the Department that it felt energy efficient glazing was being overlooked by the ECO scheme. The company urged the DECC to take on a different approach when making homes more energy efficient.

After stating that inefficient windows can cause 23% of a home’s heat energy to get lost, the GGF recommended that Ofgem should include energy efficient windows as a primary measure under the Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO).

In its letter, the company argued that suitable glazing can improve environments and, subsequently, improve the lifestyles and wellbeing of homeowners.

The GGF aims to continuing working with the Government to make energy efficient glazing a more prominent feature of Government schemes.

The company intends to follow the ECO scheme as it develops in order to keep its Members up-to-date.
