The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) has launched an inquiry into the energy efficiency of existing homes.
The UK has around 29 million homes with considerable potential to improve their energy efficiency. Homes account for just under 30% of energy use and around 20% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. It is one of the few sectors where emissions reductions have stalled.
