Electricity provider E.ON has released a new report showing how current policy frameworks leave the UK off-track to deliver its net-zero by 2050 commitment, the day after the Confederation of British Industries (CBI) called on Ministers to “make 2021 the boldest year of net-zero action”.

Eon yesterday called on policymakers to implement stricter regulations and to make more effort to win the “hearts and minds of consumers and businesses”. Failure to do so would cause Britain to miss the “net zero by 2050” target, it said. The company made ten recommendations. They included fixed dates for all houses to meet minimum energy performance standards and a sell-by date for gas boilers. Eon also called for rules to mandate that all new properties are built to zero-carbon standards and more clarity about energy-efficiency schemes that give small businesses an icentive to take early action on the issue.
