Just 1 in 6 Brits aim to help home’s efficiency over 5 yrs: Only one out of six homeowners intend to enhance the energy efficiency of their home in the coming 5 years.

The concerning discovery originates from new research by Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Group which exposes that nearly 13% of Brits strongly considered the energy efficiency of their home when it was purchased.

The survey of 2,000 people further discovered that about 8% of those strongly think that the government is now doing enough to encourage people to lower the carbon footprint of their own homes.

The study additionally reveals that only 5% of people would greatly disagree with the government making energy efficient homes cheaper to purchase with higher stamp duties.

David Adams, spokesperson for the Green Stamp Duty Incentive, Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Group, stated: “Even with worries about energy supply, rocketing energy bills & climate change in the press daily, it’s clear from our research this isn’t prompting the magnitude of demand for home energy performance improvements necessary to solve these problems.

“Clearly, government intervention is necessary to change this trajectory, but so far short term initiatives have failed to deliver the kind of sustained take-up necessary.
