Recently, I was asked to give a seminar for @mhclg’s planners on the challenges faced by local authority planners delivering against the #climateemergency, because I work with lots of councils & I’m also Cabinet Member for Forward Planning at @CotswoldDC. So I know some stuff.
First up, I did the ‘we’re all doomed’ bit. You know, the rollercoaster graphs steeply going up and the even steeper graphs of how emissions need to come down.
Then I mentioned about how most plans are running for about another 10-15 years and they need re-writing immediately because most of them pay diddly-squat attention to the ‘what goes up must come down graphs’ from the ‘we’re all doomed’ bit.

You may have heard that the @UKLabour Labour Party plans to scrap the Married Couple's Tax Allowance if they get into power. Attack ads are being shared on Facebook by the Conservative Party arguing that people will be worse off because of this. Here are the facts:
Maximum tax allowance available through the Married Couple's Tax Allowance is £250 a year. BUT…
Every Married Couple will be BETTER OFF under @UKLabour Labour - because: - and here are just five of the ways:
1. People on the #MinimumWage wage will get a minimum of £3,400 more a year,

#energytwitter @exeterepg @EnergySysCat @EnergyLeeds @EnergyREV_UK @NatureEnergyJnl continuing our energy #ideology theme for the week, we know ideology is a fundamental determinant of whether and if we legislate for an #energytransition sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
So overt questions of regulating energy in capitalism are legit terrain for a partisan empirics of energy research. But are we aware how much we enjoy our own more private ideologies? Reactions to @UKLabour energy policy are fascinating.
Responses to a #GreenNewDeal scale home retrofit programme "I already paid to insulate my home [individual responsibility trope] why should I pay for my neighbour's loft insulation [feckless socialist/free stuff trope] even before the finance mechanism is announced.

My quick THREAD 👇 on a few developments in buildings which you might have missed, but which *could* be transformational.

Covering #PAS2035, a few gems from the #GreenFinanceStrategy and the forthcoming electrification demonstrator... (1/8)
1. Last week's Govt Green Finance Strategy contains some stuff which would have been in the 2018 Energy Efficiency Action Plan. BEIS & HMT commit to consult on measures to get mortgage lenders to disclose the *average performance* across their portfolio -cf 🚗fleet average (2/8)
This could pave the way for future regulation, building on the v successful NABERS model pioneered in Melbourne commercial offices &covered in @theCCCuk 2016 Heat report (supported by #Betterbuildingspartnership in the UK) (3/8)

#NetZero target is incredibly welcome to focus minds so, from our work on over 3 million homes so far, here is what we have learned so far about the Home Front in the #climateemergency THREAD 👇
1. Carrots and sticks: Legal targets cut through ROI & get #retrofit to top of agenda. The #CleanGrowthStrategy targets are already driving investment amongst our public and private sector clients and action will accelerate once the standards, and their enforcement, are clarified
2. Sell the sofa not the finance: Of the carrots, our research amongst home-owners shows there is appetite for good-value #retrofit finance to overcome upfront costs, but the rest of the offer has to appeal first. Again, multiple levers are needed.
