New report: Energy Bill Revolution best for jobs and growth
The Energy Bill Revolution is calling on the Government to use the money it gets from carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient. This is the only permanent way to end fuel poverty and drive down household energy bills. Research has already demonstrated the social and environmental benefits of the programme: nine out of ten fuel poor households removed from fuel poverty; four times greater reduction in carbon emissions compared to the Government’s current policies.
Now a new report for our alliance partner Consumer Focus shows that the Energy Bill Revolution is also best for economic growth and job creation.
These research findings have important implications. They show that recycling carbon tax revenue to make homes super-energy efficient is a major opportunity for the Government to re-build the UK economy.
The economy will benefit from increased economic activity, job creation and reduced imports of gas and oil. And, millions of British families will get ongoing benefits from warmer homes, reduced energy bills and better health.
