Climate and energy think tank E3G has joined nearly 70 organisations calling on UK Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng to use the planned fiscal event this Friday (23rd September) to support energy efficiency at scale. 

The wide-ranging coalition includes major consumer groups Citizens Advice and Which?, energy companies EDF and OVO, financial groups such as the Building Society Association, as well as local bodies such as Greater Manchester Combined Authority.  

They are joined by major charities including Age UK, National Trust and Greenpeace. 

Juliet Phillips, Senior Policy Advisor says:

“This call-to-action provides evidence of a wide and diverse range of voices standing aligned on what’s needed to cut energy bills, boost energy security and support economic growth. The Chancellor can seize the moment at the upcoming fiscal event to supercharge a nationwide home retrofit programme.”
