The UK Government has set out a target to reduce carbon emissions by 60% by 2050. Currently 30% of the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions are emitted from housing. The government has therefore taken drastic steps to reduce carbon emissions from housing association homes by setting up several schemes. Reducing heat loss and changing light bulbs and fittings are the 2 most significant ways that energy savings can be made in the home.
