Energy efficiency benefits households, businesses and the public sector, by saving them money, by reducing energy security risks, and by supporting more sustainable business practices and lifestyles. It is the most cost-effective way to support the move to a low carbon energy system.

Improving energy efficiency in Wales is a major challenge, but the opportunity for Wales is immense.

We are keen to address this challenge and set out actions to be taken forward. Power to take action on energy efficiency is not fully devolved to Wales, so our role is limited to the promotion of energy efficiency while the regulation of energy efficiency rests with the UK Government. We are building upon considerable efforts to date by the Welsh Government and partners.

In addition, Wales has access to UK wide action through initiatives such as the Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation.

We propose to develop a new strategy that considers not just Welsh Government’s role in driving this agenda but also the role of other organisations, businesses and householders.

As a first step we are calling for evidence. We want your views on how we could improve energy efficiency performance in Wales.

The deadline for responses is 8 January 2015.
