UK plunges into even bigger energy crisis in a year time without an immediate plan to improve the leaky homes and abruptly reduce demand for gas, the ministers were warned.

UK ranks among the worst in Europe for energy efficiency of this homesaccording to new research outlining urgent need to reduce in amount of heat be wasted. Experts warning that while Liz Truss bought government time with its over £100 billion package to limit electricity bills, similarly expensive and unsustainable schemes will be needed unless there is significant plans introduced to improve homes as well as reduce demand.

The farm’s energy package is a measure that will likely determine her premiership. already under pressure for absence of detail. There is also concern that additional help will need should be targeted at the poorest households, while the relatively short-term assistance provided to businesses also to be well-mannered business groups in coming weeks.

While Truss pointed to fracking and expansion of Fossil fuels of the North Sea way of supply increase of energy, she already warned that it would fail cut prices, hurting the UK’s commitment to fighting the climate crisis. Instead, it is encouraged to copy successful policies. in Germany and other countries to improve energy efficiency of houses in the UK reduce demand.

Institute Research for Government (IfG) found UK scored worse than countries right across Europe with a range of climate in terms of energy efficiency of this is homes. Citation analysis of 2020 study is found that the UK home with room temperature of 20C and outside temperature of 0C lost on average 3C after five hours – up up to three times as much as homes in European countries such as Germany.

The analysis concludes that UK households and businesses are “likely still facing high electricity bills in winter of 2023 – it is quite possible that further. it adds: “If a government focuses only on short-term financial support and long-term measures are unlikely to have a significant impact, it will reveal itself in even more difficult position in and year is the time.

The UK is particularly vulnerable to surges in in price of gas. More than four fifths of Great Britain homes are currently is still heated by gas boilers, which significantly higher than most countries. The UK housing stock is also oldest and least energy efficient in Europe. over 52% of homes in England was built until 1965 and almost 20% were built until 1919.

IfG analysis warns that energy prices are currently expected to rise go on and stay higher for longer than previously expected in a crisis, with prices potentially remain as high as four times higher than historical figures in 2025. This means another huge salvation package may be necessary if the farm is not operational on decrease demand for gas.

Experts believe that a serious energy efficiency program could have real impact during year. The Institute pointed to Germany as success story where grants, low-interest loans, tax credits and free expert advice were used, resulting in in high booty-up numbers.

“Borrowing huge sums to freeze electricity bills only makes sense if we also have a plan reduce demand. Ad national mission to improve energy efficiency – learning from successes abroad – can real difference in reduction of pain coming for households and businesses.
