This consultation ended 8 September 2015.
Details of outcome
We want your views on how we could improve energy efficiency in Wales.
Action on energy efficiency:
- contributes strongly across our wellbeing goals
- is a major factor in green growth jobs skills and supply chains
- is the most cost-effective means of meeting our commitments to reduce carbon emissions
- lowers costs for businesses and the public sector
- can directly address fuel poverty and put money back in people's pockets.
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.
The Welsh Government has had significant impact with its energy efficiency programmes to date and by setting out long-term direction in a first Wales Energy Efficiency Strategy we have the opportunity to engage more widely in realising the opportunities and addressing barriers to uptake.
An energy efficiency call for evidence was held between 16 October 2014 and 8 January 2015 seeking the views of stakeholders on a potential vision for energy efficiency in Wales and options for a way forward. A collation document sharing the results of the call for evidence has been published alongside this draft strategy.
All responses have been considered fully in establishing the evidence and developing the strategy further and we believe that this draft strategy reflects the current evidence and the views of stakeholders. We would now like to give you the opportunity to shape the final strategy.
