People’s Energy is calling on Chancellor Rishi Sunak to deliver further support for renewable energy programmes in next week’s Budget. The energy supplier asked for investment relief and incentives for broader green tech innovation, and measures to help improve the fabric of housing. Social housing in particular was highlighted, with People’s Energy also suggesting solar panels should be put onto social housing in order to support Climate Emergency Targets and to support people on low incomes in reducing their bills. When it comes to improving the fabric of housing, the government is set to introduce the Future Homes Standard from 2025. This will see requirements for “very high” fabric standards come into play, as well as requirements for carbon saving technology. People’s Energy is also calling for more household related initiatives such as for home insulation, solar panels, batteries and electric vehicles.
