London Lags on Lagging

5 August 2011: Data released today provides further evidence on the extent that London is short-changed in relation to insulating its homes. The local authorities that have seen the lowest percentage of the housing stock insulated over the past three years through the Government’s main energy efficiency policy mechanism, CERT, are all based in London. They are: City of London (<0.1%); Westminster (0.3%); Kensington and Chelsea (0.8%); Hackney (1.3%); Hammersmith and Fulham (1.6%).

The figures, published by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), are released on a regional, council and constituency basis. They show how much loft and cavity wall insulation was professionally installed under the Government’s Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) up until 31 March 2011. The CERT places requirements on energy companies to help consumers cut their emissions through energy efficiency.
