over 150,000 households had at least one energy efficiency measure installed as part of the schemes

It has been reported in HVP that although energy companies have achieved over 99% of their energy efficiency targets, a report published by Ofgem indicated that British Gas, Drax, GPF Suez, Intergen, Scottish Power and SSE all failed to meet individual goals.

Under the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP), consumers have been benefitting from the professional installation of over 6 million energy efficiency measures. The project targeted vulnerable customers from the most deprived areas, and to ensure that as many people could take advantage as possible, Ofgem reminded the industry in September 2012 that companies risked facing enforcement action if they failed to meet their energy efficiency targets.

Between them, the energy efficiency schemes are said to have saved 312 million lifetime tonnes of CO2 emissions through measures installed before the end of 2012.

Renowned for their London emergency plumbers, Emergency Plumber operates throughout the country and also specialises in gas safety. With a keen interest in all developments within the plumbing and heating industry, the team were of course naturally intrigued by the latest news, leading a representative from the agency to share their thoughts on the matter.

“Despite the news that six companies failed to meet targets, the work that has been carried out to improve energy efficiency is very impressive and will be of great help to struggling households given the current economic climate. We were pleased to hear that that over 150,000 households had at least one energy efficiency measure installed as part of the schemes and that nearly 43,000 inefficient boilers were replaced as well. It is important to keep boilers healthy by getting them serviced and maintained regularly by a fully qualified engineer.”
