Guidance to English Energy Conservation Authorities: the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995

Updated guidance to help local authorities in England improve the energy efficiency of their residential housing.



The guidance, issued under the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995, asks local authorities to publish a report on their plans to achieve improved energy efficiency by 31 March 2017 (thereafter by 31 March 2019 up to 31 March 2027).

Local authorities will be required to identify practicable and cost-effective measures likely to result in significant energy reduction in all residential accommodation in their area.
