Main question

Leonie Cooper

As an MP, the Mayor was a registered supporter of the Energy Bill Revolution, a national campaign to end fuel poverty by bringing all homes occupied by low-income households up to a good energy efficiency standard, of Energy Performance (EPC) Band C by 2025. The latest statistics in the Housing in London report 2015 say that under 20% of all homes in London currently meet this good standard.  What specific steps will the Mayor be taking to ensure that homes in London are brought up to a good standard by 2025, in order to solve the cold homes crisis in the city?


Answer

The Mayor

The RE:NEW Support Team is helping London boroughs and social housing providers to establish large scale domestic retrofit programmes, which include installing measures in cold damp homes.
