Superglass, the Stirling-based manufacturer of glass wool insulation, has welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s announcement on Wednesday (July 8) of a £2bn fund for insulation for England.
Theresa McLean, Area Director for Superglass owner TN International UK & Ireland, said: “We welcome the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s proposal for grants to households to fund improvements including installing insulation, but as the climate is a shared endeavour for all of us, we’d like to see it rolled out across the UK and include non-domestic buildings.
“Fully insulating a home is the most efficient way to reduce its carbon footprint. Not only does it prevent energy leakage, it allows other green technology like solar panels, biomass boilers and heat pumps to run more efficiently, and maximises their potential benefits.
“The Government’s Green Homes Grant is a great start, but if we realistically want to meet the UK’s net-zero target by 2050, it can only be the first step on a long and carefully considered investment road.”
