Taking a Strategic Approach, The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 recognises local authorities' ability to significantly improve the energy efficiency of all residential accommodation in their area. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has therefore requested that all local authorities report on the measures they propose to take to achieve this aim.

Tamworth Borough Council has worked to produce its HECA Plan Progress Report 2015 which outlines the Council's strategic approach to domestic energy efficiency over future years. Subsequent progress reports will be published on this page at two-year intervals.
