Prime minister David Cameron has heard from critics of the government's Green Deal scheme who say it will fail to meet its objective of cutting carbon and helping people get cheap electricity.
BBC News reports Mr Cameron, along with his deputy Nick Clegg and energy secretary Ed Davey, have met to learn about concerns that were raised in a series of interviews conducted by the Cabinet Office.
Critics have claimed a drive to insulate solid walls rather than focusing on lofts will be expensive and put off less affluent households.
Andrew Warren of the Association for Conservation of Energy told the news provider: "If you get the policy right, you can tackle fuel poverty by getting everyone's lofts and cavity walls insulated."
However, the plans will not achieve this goal in their current form, he continued.
A spokesman for Downing Street said the meeting over the concerns was routine and Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg are "fully committed" to the Green Deal.
Earlier this week, sales and marketing director at Eco Environments Dave Hunt told a conference in Manchester the plans have great potential, but are currently "riddled ... with holes".
