The Guardian: Warnings of a crisis in Britain deeper than expected by 2023

British government experts have warned that the country will plunge into a deeper energy crisis within a year, without an immediate plan to improve homes and dramatically reduce demand for gas.


The United Kingdom ranks among the worst in Europe in terms of energy efficiency in its homes, according to new research showing the urgent need to reduce the amount of waste heat, according to a report by the Guardian newspaper.


Experts warn that while Liz Terrace has bought time for the government with a package worth more than £100 billion to reduce energy bills, expensive and unsustainable schemes will be needed unless big plans are introduced to improve homes and reduce demand.


Terrace's power package, a measure likely to shape her premiership, is already under pressure due to a lack of detail.


Another concern is that the additional aid will need to be targeted at the poorest households, while the relatively short-term assistance delivered to businesses will be triggered by business groups in the coming weeks.
