Knauf Insulation, one of the leading providers of energy efficiency measures and building products in the UK and across Europe, plans to take a more active role in developing the policies that matter to the energy efficiency and low carbon sectors.
"The Sustainable Energy Association looks forward to integrating Knauf Insulation’s knowledge and understanding to help produce a properly researched approach to industry’s integration of Government Policy across departments to promote energy efficiency and self-production of low carbon energy by end users as a single, unified, and well-integrated, “demand-side” narrative," said John Sinfield, managing director of Knauf Insulation."
Dave Sowden, chief executive of the Sustainable Energy Association, said the addition of another key player in the energy efficiency and building materials market to SEA's executive committee further strengthens the signal to Government that the demand side has a great deal to offer in reducing energy bills, relieving fuel poverty, enhancing energy security, and taking us more quickly to a low carbon future.
“Demand-side energy solutions generally cost less during their lifetime than almost every “big energy” solution," Sowden stated. " We look forward to working with Knauf Insulation and our wider membership to help us strengthen this key message in a way that is founded on sound economics, properly researched costs, and is constructive across the political spectrum.”
