Boost for energy efficient products in 2019

Lord Rupert Redesdale

Speaking to MBStv, head of the Energy Mangers Association (EMA), Lord Rupert Redesdale, reminded all building owners and product suppliers that in April 2019, the new Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR) scheme comes into force.

The EMA believes this could be one of the most significant moves to raise awareness of energy efficiency in businesses ‘since the oil shock of the 1970s’

For more on this topic and to see our interview with Lord Redesdale, visit MBStv, where we will also be showing other videos from our time at EMEX 2018 where SECR was a significant topic for a number of experts.
