What would home energy policies look like if they were designed by people who lived in those homes? Our new report presents the findings of a citizens’ panel addressing this question. We brought together a group of home owners with advisors from the Climate Change Committee (CCC) to design people-friendly policies to bring down emissions and save money on energy bills.
Over several sessions, panellists built their knowledge about how home energy use impacts climate change, and what could be done to reduce emissions and bills. They then developed proposals designed to meet the scale of the challenge in ways which work for different households across the UK. CCC analysts took part in discussions and are now using the findings to help inform its advice on policy to address home emissions.
