Extension to consultation end date
In the light of COVID-19, we have extended the consultation period to 8 January 2021 to give people more time to respond.
The government has committed to upgrade as many private rented sector homes as possible to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030, where practical, cost-effective and affordable.
This consultation sets out a suite of policy proposals towards achieving this. These proposals will bring significant benefits to landlords, tenants and our environment including:
- reducing energy bills and increased comfort for tenants and supporting delivery of our statutory fuel poverty target of EPC C by 2030
- potential property value improvements for landlords
- delivering carbon emission savings over Carbon Budgets 4 and 5, making progress towards our net zero target
We have published a consultation stage impact assessment alongside this consultation.
See the BEIS consultation privacy notice.
Please do not send responses by post to the department at the moment as we may not be able to access them.
