star this property answer text <p>The transition to a clean, low carbon economy can help give us towns and cities with cleaner air and warmer homes with lower bills, while growing our economy and supporting new jobs in growing low carbon industries – already there are almost 400,000 jobs in low carbon business and their supply chains. By one estimate this could grow to 2 million jobs in 2030.</p><p> </p><p>But as our economy changes we must make sure that this growth is inclusive, benefits people right across the UK, supporting workers as industries change and ensuring the costs as well as the benefits are shared fairly, protecting consumers, workers and businesses. The Offshore Wind Sector Deal sets out that offshore wind could support 27,000 jobs across the UK by 2030. With the industry committed to sourcing 60% total lifetime UK content and increasing UK content in the capital expenditure phase, there will also be a need for highly skilled workers in manufacturing areas throughout the supply chain. The sector will also bolster regional clusters by working with local, regional, and devolved government and economic development agencies.</p><p> </p><p>That is why we have announced that HM Treasury will be conducting a review into the costs of decarbonisation, including how to achieve this transition in a way that works for households, businesses and public finances, and the implications for UK competitiveness.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Building Research Establishment (BRE) paper does not find that there is an increased risk that boilers will be non-compliant. BEIS officials worked closely with BRE to assess this risk when the matter was first raised in 2018, and agreed that non-compliance is not the correct interpretation of their paper. They have since published a clarification on their own website, to ensure their work is not misused to make inappropriate claims.
