Energy efficiency suppliers lacking confidence in government policy, report shows
Confidence in the government’s policies among non-domestic energy efficiency suppliers remained flat in the third quarter of last year after hitting an all-time low in Q2, a survey has found. The quarterly Energy Efficiency Trends, by EEVS and Bloomberg New Energy Finance, was published on Monday 25 January. It said that the proportion of respondents reporting effective policy management had doubled (from 5% to 10%), but that those reporting ineffective management had reached an all-time high of 64%. Confidence in the government’s management of the wider economy continued its decline in the third quarter as respondents reporting effective management dropped from 41% to 10%.
