    E.on boss in call for insulation expansion

    August 1, 2022 - John Paul Holden


      The boss of E.on has called on the next prime minister to “pick up the baton” and rapidly expand the amount of insulation being installed in homes across Britain.

      Michael Lewis said the “single most important thing” a new government can do is expand the scheme that helps low-income and vulnerable households improve the energy efficiency of their homes. It comes amid predictions bills could hit £3,850 early next year.

      The so-called ECO scheme means energy suppliers sometimes install insulation and other home improvements free, but some customers are asked to chip in part of the cost.

      Mr Lewis said: “The single most important thing government can do in the short-term is expand the ECO programme – the Energy Company Obligation – so we can do more energy efficient measures quicker for customers, and help, in particular, vulnerable customers and people on low incomes get a reduction in bills.

      “The next PM needs to pick up the baton and move forward with things that we know need to be done, and which we are clear will make a tangible benefit not only to net-zero, but also to getting us off the global gas market, which is the cause of our current energy crisis.”
