Dunne calls for financial incentives for owners of industrial and agricultural buildings to improve their energy efficiency

21st May 2019

Philip Dunne applauds the Government’s record on tackling climate change and calls on the Government to introduce incentives to encourage occupiers and owners of industrial and agricultural buildings to improve their energy efficiency.

T2. The Government have an excellent track record in tackling climate change, notwithstanding what Opposition Members said earlier, and I applaud their commitment to doing more. Will the Chancellor consider introducing incentives in the comprehensive spending review to encourage occupiers and owners of industrial and agricultural buildings to improve their energy efficiency? [911027]

The clean growth strategy set out our ambition to enable businesses and industry to improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2030. Today farmers in a community such as Ludlow can make use of the rural development programme for agricultural buildings, but we have also announced two new schemes. First, there is the £315 million investment in a new industrial energy transformation fund, and secondly, we have published a call for evidence on a business energy efficiency scheme focused on smaller businesses.
