‘Each Home Counts Review’ Newsletter

28th November 2016

Hello!

The Review team are working on finalising the Review report with support from the workstream leads. As we move towards the report publication, preparations for the implementation phase of the Review Report are also starting to take shape.

We plan to publish the Review report as soon as we can and will keep you informed regarding when that will be. We appreciate your continued patience in the meantime.

Code of Conduct workshop
The Each Home Counts: Code of Conduct work stream held their first workshop on Friday 25th November 2016 led by Liz Male.

More specifically, sequestered in a windowless room, a group of 17 stakeholders began to tie together the different aspects of the strawman for the Code of Conduct envisioned under the Review.

The Code of Conduct will set out how firms behave, operate and report in order to hold the proposed Quality Mark for the energy efficiency and renewable energy sector.

This is the first essential step to drafting the related Consumer Charter of rights and responsibilities of the householder.

We anticipate many opportunities for stakeholder engagement in both going forward.
