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. That clarification can be found at the following url: <a href="https://www.bregroup.com/press-releases/statement-regarding-energy-efficiency-labelling-of-boilers/" target="_blank">https://www.bregroup.com/press-releases/statement-regarding-energy-efficiency-labelling-of-boilers/</a></p> more like this

Various other consents and permissions (such as planning permission, environmental permits, drilling consent, etc) are required before any drilling operations can take place.</p><p> </p><p>In line with the above, INEOS’ application for planning permission at Bramleymoor Lane, Derbyshire, allows for a well to be drilled to an approximate depth of 2,400m, at which INEOS believe the target geological formations are now thought to lie.</p><p> </p><p>The OGA has not at this stage received an application from INEOS for consent to drill the well. At the time of such an application, and subject to other necessary permits, the licensee can seek agreement to reduce the original commitment depth after explaining their geotechnical rationale.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Homes in the UK represent 15% of carbon emissions and meeting the previous 2050 target would require largely eliminating emissions from our housing stock. With the Government’s new legally binding target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across the UK economy by 2050, our current and future actions to encourage home energy efficiency have become all the more crucial.</p><p>Through the Energy Company Obligation, we have supported energy efficiency improvements to over 2 million homes since 2013, and in April 2018 introduced regulations setting minimum energy efficiency standards for privately rented homes. We have committed to extend support for energy efficiency out to 2028, driving more than £6 billion of investment in domestic energy efficiency over the next ten years.</p><p>In the Clean Growth Strategy we set out our aspiration for as many homes as possible to achieve EPC Band C where cost effective, affordable and practical by 2035. This provides a good basis for net zero, providing a cost-effective level of energy efficiency to provide the basis for decarbonisation of heating systems.</p><p>In order to meet this aspiration, we are working to build a vibrant and sustainable market for energy efficiency through introducing a suite of mutually supporting policies and measures that will drive uptake of energy efficiency amongst homeowners. These policies have been informed in part to responses we received to the 2017 Building a Market for Energy Efficiency Call for Evidence and the recently published Green Finance strategy sets out some of our current and future actions in this area.</p><p>By 2025 the Government will also introduce a Future Homes Standard for new build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world leading levels of energy efficiency, to create healthy homes that are fit for the future, have low energy bills, and are better for the environment. We will provide additional details of the planned introduction of the Future Homes Standard within the 2019 consultation on the energy efficiency standards of the Building Regulations.</p>
