Home energy conservation act

The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA) requires Bassetlaw District Council 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.

Driving local domestic energy efficiency improvements can bring significant benefits for Bassetlaw Council and our residents including:

  • helping reduce residents' fuel bills
  • helping make homes warmer and healthier
  • support the creation and maintenance of local jobs and skills
  • making a vital contribution to reducing local and national carbon emissions
  • supporting wider local strategic priorities on issues such as health and poverty.
