A Conservative plan to reduce the impact of price rises from energy suppliers could involve homeowners being allocated £6,500 towards efficiency costs.
Energyefficiencynews.com reports that Gregory Barker, the shadow minister for climate change and the environment, outlined various details including plans to establish a nationwide network through which electric cars could be recharged, in addition to plans to increase offshore energy generation.
The cost of installing energy efficiency measures in homes would be paid for through long-term energy savings made over up to 25 years.
Mr Barker told the website: "Energy efficiency is the most cost-effective means of delivering energy security and emissions savings. And it's something that we can all do now."
He added that pursuing energy efficiency will be crucial for the economy in the 21st Century and that the UK needs to do its best to catch up with mainland Europe.
The government recently announced plans to insulate every home in the UK, rather than tackle energy prices by imposing a windfall tax on suppliers.
