Lenders support in principle initiatives that can help borrowers reduce household energy costs. We have flagged that the viability of many of the proposals in the Call for Evidence could depend on issues including conduct and capital regulation, which would have to be addressed first.
We are ready to engage further with BEIS as proposals are developed that take account of the evidence given. We expect outcomes to be deliverable for lenders that want to respond to commercial opportunities in a growing energy efficiency market that delivers improvements that customers genuinely want, need and can afford.
