Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes has appointed Professor David Strong as its new Chair.
The Partnership is an independent, collaborative network of more than 575 supply chain organisations involved in the delivery of energy efficiency products and services to UK consumers.
It acts as a neutral space for members to work together to inform the practicality of government initiatives on domestic energy efficiency, carbon savings, energy security and the eradication of fuel poverty.
The Partnership has been particularly successful in recent months in providing the Government with practical insights into the forthcoming Household Energy Management strategy, as well as the extension of CERT (Carbon Emissions Reduction Target) and the introduction of CESP (Community Energy Saving Programme). It has some 75 different streams of work covering topics as diverse as consumer electronics and white goods, local authority engagement, fuel poverty, glazing, heating, insulation and lighting, and newbuild and ‘hard to treat’ homes.
Professor Strong is chief executive of sustainability consultancy Inbuilt and also chairs DIAG, the group that advises on the implementation of the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in the UK. He will be working to build the Partnership’s profile at government, civil service and industry level.
