Press Release:
NIA welcomes Liberal Democrats' commitment to Energy Efficiency

Release Date 01 September 2014

Following the announcement today of the 5 new laws for a greener Britain that will be included in the Liberal Democrat manifesto, Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the National Insulation Association (NIA) commented: "We welcome and are encouraged by the proposals to introduce new regulations to address energy efficiency, including a new heating and energy efficiency bill and a national programme to raise energy efficiency standards for all British households. This is very much in line with the recommendations from industry in its report 'A housing stock fit for the future' launched on 24th June 2014."

He added: "We still have over 7 million homes that have inadequate Loft Insulation, over 5 million that require Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) and almost 8 million homes that need Solid Wall Insulation (SWI). We therefore need to be strengthening our energy efficiency programmes and accelerating the pace of delivery. We require a long term structured plan to achieve this and transform the nation’s housing stock and we look forward to working with all political parties in bringing this about."
