'Most consumers' have yet to employ energy efficiency initiatives

The majority of consumers have yet to employ energy efficiency schemes in their properties, according to one sector commentator.

Gordon Miller, founder of online resource whatgreenhome.com, made his comments after the Department of Energy and Climate Change announced governmental plans to improve the energy efficiency of low-income consumers' properties at the end of last month.

These included the roll out of guidelines on insulation and the implementation of new regulations to provide fairer deals on improvement.

Mr Miller said that the majority of consumers have yet to implement simple energy efficiency strategies in their properties - which could include business premises that they own - such as installing more efficient boilers, double glazing and other technologies.

"Once most of us have taken care of these truly 'easy things' then we can progress to secondary measures like encouraging the installation of condensing boilers and a take up of microgeneration technologies," he added.
