EAS Reaction to Scottish Govt announcement - climate change and energy efficiency

Commenting on today’s announcement by the Scottish Government:

Elizabeth Gore, Deputy Director of the national fuel poverty charity Energy Action Scotland said: “Making the improvement of the energy efficiency of Scotland’s homes a national infrastructure priority is to be welcomed as a positive move in the right direction by the Scottish Government. Reducing energy bills and tackling fuel poverty ought to be as important as reducing carbon.  Now is the time when the Scottish Government must also take the opportunity to undertake a full review of how fuel poverty in Scotland can be eradicated and in what timescale.”
