Overview

The Government has committed to upgrade as many private rented sector homes as possible to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030, where practical, cost-effective and affordable. 

Join us and professionals from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), as they introduce the consultation on how private rented sector homes will be brought up to Band C by 2030. BEIS will answer your questions about the proposals and then we will seek your views on proposals affecting England and Wales.

The UK housing stock is generally older than in the rest of Europe, and the potential for improvement in the energy performance of our homes is considerable. This is perhaps most significant in the private rented sector, which represents 20% of the housing stock, and has the highest concentration of fuel poor tenants (17.7%).

The consultation sets out a suite of policy proposals towards achieving this. These proposals aim to bring significant benefits to landlords, tenants and our environment including:

  • reducing energy bills and increased comfort for tenants and supporting delivery of our statutory fuel poverty target of EPC C by 2030
  • potential property value improvements for landlords
  • delivering carbon emission savings over Carbon Budgets 4 and 5, making progress towards our net zero target

We are keen to hear from Environmental Health Practitioners working within private sector housing teams to feed their expertise into this consultation and hear more about its aims during this webinar.
