The UK's leading home builders, supply sectors, regulators and environmental groups have committed to a sector-wide delivery plan for meeting environmental and Net Zero targets.
Randolph Brazier, Director of Innovation and Electricity Systems at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:
“It is a simple fact that well-built homes will help people stay warmer in winter, cooler in summer and keep their energy bills down. Whether it’s heat-pumps, hydrogen, energy efficiency or district heating, high quality homes are at the heart of providing customers with the most accessible and affordable ways to decarbonise their heating.”
Notes to editors
The plan was developed under the Future Homes Task Force.

What are energy network operators?
Energy network operators manage and maintain the wires, pipes and other infrastructure which delivers electricity and gas to your home, business and community. They are private companies which are regulated by Ofgem and employ around 45,000 people in the UK and Ireland. They are represented by their industry body, Energy Networks Association (that's us).
Energy supplier or network operator? Energy network operators are entirely separate to your energy supplier, which is the company that bills you for using electricity and gas. Energy suppliers and generators are represented by Energy UK.
