Retrofit benefits highlighted by report

A report published by the UK Green Building Council has found that up to two million extra retrofits could be driven by three key incentives.

The report – Retrofit Incentives: Boosting the take-up of energy efficiency measures in domestic properties – also found that the moves would add hundreds of millions of pounds to economic output.

The proposed incentives are variable stamp duty, variable council tax and an energy efficiency feed-in tariff.

All the measures were estimated to have minimal costs to the government.

The report was drawn up by a task force including Carillion, Keepmoat, Saint-Gobain, Sweett, Willmott Dixon and WSP representatives.
