Policy & Advocacy


Before the 2015 General Election, UKGBC coordinated the Homes Fit for the Future campaign which called for home energy efficiency to be recognised as a national infrastructure priority.
The campaign sought to create a sustainable market and significantly scale up delivery by making home energy efficiency a national infrastructure priority and creating a national programme for delivery.
In the run-up to the 2015 General Election, we called on all political parties to:
  • Make home energy efficiency a top infrastructure priority
  • Support investment with a long term revenue stream
  • Achieve 1 million deep retrofits each year by 2020
In June 2014, we published a joint report, A housing stock fit for the future: Making home energy efficiency a national infrastructure priority, which summarised the key benefits of energy efficiency and set out the campaign’s key asks.
