Abstract: For forty years the Government has tried to cut energy use in UK homes. Energy efficiency in housing has always jockeyed with other priorities, but recent concerns about climate change have forced our homes’ carbon emissions to centre stage. How successful have we been, though, in meeting climate change targets for housing?
