TFT Energy Survey launched amidst energy policy uncertainty


Tuffin Ferraby Taylor has launched the TFT Energy Survey 2016, its first annual survey into the current barriers to delivering truly energy efficient real estate. Given the continuing changes in the energy sector, as well as recent government announcements expected to have a significant impact on the industry, the survey explores a number of key issues including whether energy efficiency has become more or less of a priority at this stage of the economic cycle.

Mat Lown, Partner and Head of Sustainability, Tuffin Ferraby Taylor, said:

Far from sitting on its laurels waiting for the government to be clearer on energy policy; investors, owners and occupiers are pro-actively looking at energy efficiency in their properties. However, significant barriers remain not only to energy efficiency but also to even small-scale renewable energy generation.

By seeking to understand how the market perceives these barriers, it may help us all move towards an environment where, despite political uncertainty, technological drivers help owners and occupiers ensure their properties are ready for a post-2018 world.
