Public support the Great British refurb



The public strongly supports the government’s plans to ‘decarbonise’ the nation’s housing stock according to research by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. Researchers found householders are willing to ‘play their part’ in tackling climate change, and under the Great British Refurb plans, at least 7 million homes by 2020 and every home by 2030 will be offered whole house upgrades with energy efficiency and micro generation technologies. Individuals said they also want help with the up-front costs of decarbonising their homes through loans and grants, and they want fair target to take into account the diversity of the UK housing stock.
