New energy efficiency organisation launches New energy efficiency organisation launches

New not-for-profit organisation the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Buildings (EEPB) has been launched. It replaces the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes, which traditionally did a lot of work with local authorities, housing associations and charities, particularly in regards to fuel poverty.

The EEPB’s objectives include the development of industry-agreed solutions to barriers which impede the take-up of energy efficiency measures, energy saving products and low carbon technologies and associated services, while also addressing climate change, energy security and fuel poverty issues.

Dr David Strong, chairman of the EEPB, said: “The creation of the EEPB comes at a very significant time. Organisations across all parts of industry, all parts of the product and delivery sectors, and all parts of the private and public sector are seeking to collaborate and find answers to how we make the most of the new energy efficiency policies coming through from Government.  Similarly, a broad group of Government departments will benefit from the expertise our members can offer.

“Our priority working groups will be looking at how we overcome market barriers and unlock opportunities from Green Deal and ECO, especially for SMEs. We will be organising a lot of constructive dialogue and interaction with policy makers to develop practical solutions to all the current issues of concern.”
