Welsh Government: Energy Efficiency for Wales

Generating more energy and then making sure that it is used efficiently is critical to the long term health, well being and economic success of Wales and its people – we need to think about how we can be more efficient.

24th July 2015

Power to take action on energy efficiency is not fully devolved to Wales, so their role is limited to the promotion while the regulation rests with the UK Government. That means it is important to understand and consider all of the options when creating a new energy efficiency strategy for Wales and the Welsh Government is asking for interested organisations and individuals to contribute to the development of a new Energy Efficiency Strategy for Wales.

As a major enabler for all aspects of Welsh society construction has a huge impact on energy efficiency. It is important that CEW stakeholders play their part in the consultation.

The Welsh Government has had significant impact with its energy efficiency programmes to date, and by setting out long-term direction in a first Wales Energy Efficiency Strategy, we have the opportunity to engage more widely in realising the opportunities and addressing barriers to uptake.
