This consultation seeks views on the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing post-2020 (EESSH2).

 

Through the work of the EESSH Review, a new milestone has been agreed for consultation, proposing to maximise the number of homes in the social rented sector attaining Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Energy Efficiency (EE) Rating B (hereafter referred as EPC B) by 2032.

 

This will be supported by: a formal opportunity for review proposed for 2025 to assess progress and consider the introduction of air quality and environmental impact elements to the 2032 milestone; and a minimum standard that no social housing should fall below EPC D. A longer term vision is also proposed for 2040, whereby poor energy efficiency has been removed as a driver for fuel poverty and all social hosing is carbon-neutral as far as reasonably practical.
