The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) recently attended the British Energy Efficiency Federation’s Plenary at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Conference Centre in Westminster.
Directors of BEIS and senior civil servants were present to update delegates on the following areas:
– Carbon taxation implications for companies and consumers
– Zero Carbon Buildings by 2050
– The progress of the Each Home Counts Scheme
– The Government spending review 2021
– Energy Efficiency in the rental sector
– Clean growth strategy and the public sector
Representing the GGF, James Lee, Director of External Affairs (pictured), commented: “The discussions were productive and it was good to receive greater details of the Government’s plans for energy efficiency in the short, medium and long term.
“Several issues affecting the glass and glazing industry were raised. In particular, the government backed scheme Each Home Counts and how it will work for the benefit of home improvement companies.
“The GGF also raised concerns over local government restrictions on energy efficient glass and glazing in conservation areas.”
A full report of this meeting and update of the GGF’s political campaigns will be issued at the next joint meeting of the GGF Conservatory Association and the Window and Door Group on 8 August, to which all GGF Members are invited.
The GGF is scheduled to hold further discussions with BEIS on energy efficiency in early September.
