On 12 February, Ed Miliband announced the Government's draft Heat and Energy Saving strategy. The plan, published for consultation by the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Communities and Local Government sets out the Government's vision to 2020 and beyond, and seeks views on a range of policies which could help to decarbonise the way homes and businesses are heated, helping to reduce the UK's CO2 emissions and to contribute to the target of obtaining 20% of all EU energy from renewables by 2020.
