Energy efficiency measures give Britain £37bn boost every year


From turning down the thermostat by one degree to harnessing waste heat from industry to power homes, energy efficiency measures are worth more than £37bn to the British economy each year, a new analysis will show next week.

The report will be launched by the Combined Heat and Power Association (CHPA) as it prepares to rebrand as the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) – a move designed to better highlight how technologies such as demand response and combined heat and power (CHP) systems can deliver economic and environmental benefits.

The revamped ADE hopes to promote the financial benefits of measures that reduce energy demand, ranging from onsite power generation to district heat networks and demand response technologies, whereby businesses cut their energy use at short notice to help balance the grid.

The new report will show that together, decentralised generation, demand response, and demand reduction measures are worth £37.2bn to the UK economy each year.
