Government pledge to meet climate targets by 2035

In an announcement to be made this week, the prime minister will pledge to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035.

This marks a 15 year reduction in the UKs climate targets which would be a world-leading position.

The Government has accepted the advice of its independent Climate Change Committee (CCC) in shaping its policies.

The CCC report notes that improvements will be required to the UKs housing stock to make homes more energy efficient.

A fabric first policy aims to insulate properties more effectively to eventually allow heat pumps to become more prevalent.

Heat pumps don't provide enough warmth in poorly insulated homes, losing favour to gas heating systems as the next most efficient solution.

The announcement comes after a recent report by the CCC detailing the role of local authorities in reducing carbon emissions in the UK.

The report details how councils could access available government funding initiatives, with the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) listed as a useful tool.

With YES Energy Solutions named in the report as a credible company to help local authorities utilise ECO funding, our services were recognised for helping support people on low incomes and who are vulnerable to the cold.
