Energy Efficiency Description:

The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan was a white paper outlining how the British economy will be transformed to ensure the UK meets its emission reduction targets, secures its energy supplies for the future, maximises the economic opportunities for jobs, skills and investment as well as ensuring policies are fair to protect the most vulnerable in society. It set out the then government's long-term strategy to radically cut the nation's carbon emissions by 2020 - 18% from 2008 levels (over one third from 1990 levels) and meet its first three carbon budgets. It Is not a statement of current Government policy.
