Energy Efficiency Trends is a quarterly report focused on the UK market, providing insight into non-residential energy efficiency.
This edition (Vol. 11) follows on from our pre-election special feature and of course that result ‒ a Conservative-only government, albeit one with a slender parliamentary majority. It is of course still early days, but it is perhaps an outcome that will provide the business community – and energy efficiency therein – with a stronger sense of political stability and policy certainty than has been the case in recent times.
Alongside this new political landscape there is also the dynamics of the macro-economic landscape to consider. In previous editions we have commented on the historic levels of low inflation that the UK is experiencing. At the time of writing the latest energy-related news is British Gas’ announcement of a 5% cut in its energy prices; inflation as a driver for greater energy efficiency investment is then perhaps further away than it has been before.
With this edition of Energy Efficiency Trends we are however back to business-as-usual; examining the UK’s commercial energy efficiency market from both supplier and customer perspectives. We hope that you find the latest market intelligence useful, as well as the longer term trends and insights that we can now report from our expanding dataset.
