Keynote speech on households and the Green policies they need

I have been asked to give the keynote speech tomorrow at a major national Conference of heating engineers, the IDHEE, in Eastern Region at the University of Herts. Here is a link to the powerpoint presentation that will be the backbone of my talk:

And here is a quick summary of key policy points that will be in the talk:

SUMMARY:

I will focus primarily in this talk on what policy government at all
levels – Councils, Westminster, and E.U. – need to put in place, in
order to have any chance at all of securing 90% CO2 reductions by 2050,
and 60% reductions by 2025 (plus also meeting fuel-poverty reduction
targets etc.), including:
1) Free insulation for all. A government programme to roll out an
acceptable level of insulation for ALL houses in Britain – not just new
build, within 5-10 years.
2) Renewable energy (or CHP) in ALL new developments. This policy has
already been introduced by Norwich Green Party. The Merton Rule should
be merely a starting-point, in this regard.
3) A massive programme of grants for renewable energy and energy
efficiency measures for individuals and businesses, to replace the
present government’s pitifully inadequate grants programmes.
Plus... carbon rationing!
