'Rebate to renovate': Think tanks join calls for stamp duty cuts to encourage home energy efficiency

Sam Hall, director of CEN - a Parliamentary caucus which counts more than 100 Conservative MPs as members - said an energy efficiency rebate scheme would be an effective way to incentive green upgrades to homes, thereby easing pressure on household bills and helping to make the UK more energy secure.

"Since the Prime Minister has ruled out mandating higher energy efficiency standards, it is important that households are instead offered incentives to insulate their homes in order to achieve our climate targets," he said. "The policy would also go with the grain of consumer behaviour, encouraging people to insulate their homes as part of wider renovations after moving in, and help lower the overall tax burden."
