This paper contains the oral and written evidence given to the House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee for the 'Low carbon technologies in a green economy' report. The report recognises that the Government is moving in the right direction on low carbon technologies, notably through its recent publication of 'Warm Homes, Greener Homes, A Strategy for Household Energy Management', but must tackle energy efficiency more aggressively - not just for the sake of UK emissions reduction targets but also for the sake of stimulating growth in local jobs and the economy. Low carbon technologies have a vital role to play in the move towards a green economy. Such technologies have the potential to reduce the carbon intensity of processes at every stage of the energy supply chain - from low carbon energy generation, through storage and transmission, to end user efficiency. In doing so, carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced, jobs will be created, and the UK economy will grow sustainably.
