Multi-Organisation Reponse to DECC Consultation on The role of appliances and consumer electronics in the CERT (2011)

  back to resources page

This multi-organisation response was coordinated by Waterwise. Signatories to this response agree that CERT has been a useful mechanism to help the UK deliver its carbon emission reduction targets and stay within carbon budgets. It is recommended that the Coalition Government should review the existing function and scope of CERT within the extension period and in particular look at the role of non-insulation measures. We are of the opinion that the current scope of CERT should be maintained during the extension period, but with greater enforcement of existing regulation and amendments which maximise the potential for promoting joint water and energy programmes to ensure cost-effective CERT delivery.
