Home Energy Conservation Act

Last Updated:

Improving the energy efficiency of residential housing and the reduction of fuel poverty are key priorities for the Council. This is reflected in our commitment to Climate Local Kent and the Fuel Poverty Strategy For Kent - Delivering Affordable Warmth.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) requires all English local authorities with housing responsibilities to prepare reports to identify proposed measures to deliver significant improvement in the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in its area. The actions identified in our Home Energy Conservation Act Report show how we are achieving these action plan targets and contributing to home energy conservation. We are required to report on progress in implementing the measures set out in the report at two yearly intervals.
