The December edition of H&V News has found that post-Brexit regulatory alignment with the EU and the creation of a national retrofit strategy to support decarbonised heat are among some of the key priorities the HVAC industry hopes to see from a future government.
All key parties standing in the upcoming General Election have outlined major decarbonisation proposals, with Labour, the Liberal Democrats and – perhaps unsurprisingly – the Green Party, setting out several key pledges for greener heat and homes.
A survey of over 600 hundred business owners working across the HVAC and building services sector has found a strong majority have suffered stress and other significant mental health issues as a result of poor payment practices.
The industry’s calls to define a clear direction for leaving the EU, while fully avoiding the ‘worst case-scenario’ of a no-deal withdrawal will continue for at least several more months with an additional New Year Brexit extension agreed and a General Election set for 12 December.
BESA has welcomed some of the broad initiatives outlined in this week’s Queen’s Speech as a step towards much needed reforms for the HVAC and building services sector. However, the organisation said it was disappointed about a lack of clear commitments to ending poor payment practices in the legislative agenda for the new parliament.
