Boosting Energy IQ: UK energy efficiency policy for the workplace

Based on interviews with 22 energy experts and analysis of current policy, Boosting Energy IQ finds the UK’s overlapping climate policies are unnecessarily complex. Moreover, they have created multiple carbon prices across the non-domestic sector. This risks making overall carbon reductions more expensive. The report argues for a simpler policy framework that will help ensure that managing energy use is a greater priority for organisations. The report calls for the scrapping of the unfair and overcomplicated CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. It should be replaced with mandatory reporting for 24,000 organisations and a fairer, clearer carbon price with a more certain future trajectory.
