Energy policy after the General Election

House of Commons debate on post election energy policies

GGF visited the House of Commons on the 2nd March for a debate hosted by the Parliamentary Group for Energy Studies (PGES)

Over 40 delegates at the debate on ‘Energy policy after the General Election: Priorities for the next Government’. Contributions came from:

  • Antonia Dickman, Associate Director, Ipsos Mori
  • Lord Redesdale (Lib Dem), Member of PGES and Vice-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Climate Change and Intelligent Energy
  • Amber Rudd MP (Cons), Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change 

Debate included

  • views on different types of energy
  • consumer perceptions on many parts of energy policy
  • energy security
  • fuel prices and affordability
  • energy efficiency and the current performance of the Government’s energy efficient schemes

GGF on whole house approach and Green Deal concerns

The GGF raised the issue that a whole house approach would be best applied for energy efficiency schemes to ensure properties are properly insulated and therefore more energy efficient.

The Federation also raised concerns about the lack of incentives for consumers to install windows under Green Deal.
