2.6 million homes have received energy-saving help in the last three years as a result of the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target, with over 813,000 loft and cavity wall installations installed in the last year.
uSwitch revealed that over 6.3 million UK households are living in fuel poverty. Energy efficiency measures could help ease the pressure that rising energy bills are placing on homes.
Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Chris Huhne, said: “With energy prices ramping up people want to know how they can keep their bills down. We’ve told energy companies to do far more to help consumers cut their bills and while these figures show a mixed picture across Britain, they also show that millions of homes are already benefiting.”
Loft and cavity wall insulation can save consumers over £100 in their fuel bills.
