Fuel poverty - Home energy conservation act (HECA) report 2013

The Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) requires all Local Authorities to prepare a report setting out the energy conservation measures that the authority considers practicable, cost-effective and likely to result in significant improvement in the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in its area.

This is the starting point for action by central and local government to significantly improve the energy efficiency of residential accommodation across the country, a legal requirement under the Climate Change Act 2008 and a key strategy for reducing fuel poverty.

Bassetlaw District Council is keen to encourage and support local domestic energy efficiency improvements in order to bring about significant benefits for our residents including:

  • helping to reduce fuel bills for local residents;
  • helping make homes warmer and healthier;
  • support for the creation and maintenance of local green businesses, jobs and skills;
  • opportunities for local economic and physical regeneration;
  • making a vital contribution to reducing local and national carbon emissions;
  • supporting wider local strategic priorities, on issues such as health and poverty.

The Council's HECA Report details the opportunities for improving energy efficiency and sets out our aims for the area. This report will be updated every two years.
