Have your say in the Bonfield Review Oct 15, 2015

Bonfield Review

Peter Bonfield is encouraging organisations from across the energy efficiency industry to contribute to his Government commissioned review, which could shape the future of green policy in the UK.

Having been tasked to evaluate consumer protection, advice, standards and enforcement for domestic energy efficiency and renewables, Bonfield is now looking to installers for innovative ideas of how to regenerate the industry.

Speaking at a seminar during UK Construction Week in Birmingham, he explained:

"If you have ideas, we want you to get involved," adding that the whole purpose of the review was to put forward "new standards, better standards, better enforcement and better policing."

He explained that the review was looking at a broad range of policy areas focussing on how to accelerate the roll out energy efficiency technologies, improve standards and secure funding.

The review will look at new approaches to the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, as well as the potential for banks and building societies to establish ‘Green Mortgages’ whereby resident are offered better rates for having a more energy efficient home.

Bonfield is Chief Executive of the BRE Group and was approached by the Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd and Communities Secretary Greg Clark to carry out the evaluation.

Sources have revealed that recommendations from the review are likely to be published in March 2016.
