Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA)
The Government has placed a responsibility on local authorities to assess the needs of their residents and to act as catalysts for change in local areas. The Home Energy Conservation Act (1995) recognises local authorities' ability to use their position to improve the energy efficiency of all residential accommodation.
The GM HECA Report sets out the energy conservation measures which will be delivered, the measures are what we consider practicable, cost-effective and likely to result in significant improvements in the energy efficiency of residential accommodation. The report has been produced in partnership with the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA) to ensure a consistent and comparable approach across Greater Manchester. Each of the 10 Local Authorities have produced an Annex to the GM submission detailing localised and specific actions.Manchester City Council's can be found in Annex 2 of the Report.
We will work with local and national partners to promote the Energy Company Obligation scheme and other relevant government policy to achieve its ambitions
