Knauf Insulation is the latest company to join the newly launched organisation, Sustainable Energy Association, at the highest category of membership.
As Knauf Insulation is one of the leading providers of energy efficiency measures and building products in the UK and across Europe, it has joined the Sustainable Energy Association to take an active role in developing the policies that matter to the energy efficiency and low carbon sector.
John Sinfield, Managing Director of Knauf Insulation commented: “We welcome the opportunity to be proactively involved in the development of this new trade association. The Government is missing the economic opportunity that an integrated approach to building energy requirements provides, combining energy efficiency measures with onsite low carbon technologies. The Sustainable Energy Association has a vital role to play in shaping this agenda.”
Knauf Insulation will provide the Sustainable Energy Association with the knowledge and understanding to help produce a properly researched approach to industry’s integration of Government Policy across departments, to promote energy efficiency and self-production of low carbon energy.
Dave Snowden, Chief Executive of the Sustainable Energy Association commented: “We are delighted to welcome Knauf Insulation to the top table of the Sustainable Energy Association. The addition of another key player in the energy efficiency and building materials market to our Executive Committee further strengthens the signal to Government that the demand side has a great deal to offer in reducing energy bills, relieving fuel poverty, enhancing energy security, and taking us more quickly to a low carbon future.
“Demand-side energy solutions generally cost less during their lifetime than almost every “big energy” solution. We look forward to working with Knauf Insulation and our wider membership to help us strengthen this key message in a way that is founded on sound economics, properly researched costs, and is constructive across the political spectrum.”
