Report launch event – Paint the Town Green: Meeting the energy efficiency challenge at community level


PLEASE NOTE – New event date.

The report (kindly supported by British Gas) examines in detail the potential for expanding the new Green Deal household energy saving scheme in the social housing sector; allowing local authorities, RSLs and Housing Associations to play a central role in reaching Britain’s CO2 emissions target and lessening the threat of fuel poverty for their tenants.

The report will propose recommendations on:

  • How the Green Deal will help to meet the Government’s target to reduce carbon emissions
  • The vital role of social housing stock and social landlords in delivering the Green Deal
  • The overarching strategic role local authorities and other social landlords can play in delivering the Green Deal

Confirmed speakers include:
Andrew Stunell MP, Parliamentary under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government (confirmed)
Murad Qureshi AM, Deputy Chair, GLA Environment Committee
