The government has announced plans to access cheap energy by installing domestic energy-efficient materials in all UK homes by 2030.
Major pushes will be organised to ensure homes are fitted with cavity wall and loft insulation, with an interim target to have 400,000 homes insulated within the next six years.
Energy suppliers will help pay for additional microgeneration technology such as solar panels and ground source heat pumps, all of which will help cut back on energy consumption and emissions.
Ed Miliband, the energy and climate change secretary, said: "We need to move from incremental steps forward on household energy efficiency to a comprehensive national plan - the great British refurb."
Mr Miliband added that the intention was to cut back on the average of £300 in unused energy that is wasted every year from houses that lack insulation. He also said that initial installation costs would be offset by eventual bill savings.
Energy efficiency has been the government's preferred route to cheap energy prices since calls to further tax energy suppliers were dismissed.
