Following the unexpected results of May 7th, this breakfast session will discuss what a Conservative majority will mean for the construction industry going forward. Whilst David Cameron has made very clear statement in his manifesto on the UK energy mix and renewable generation, pledges associated with the built environment have been focussed on a commitment to creating new homes and easing the critical skills shortage through apprenticeships. Meanwhile, any pledges made linked to energy efficiency may be forgotten as the Government prioritises other issues in the built environment. The Tory manifesto set out an ambition to ‘cut carbon emissions as cost-effectively as possible’, but according to the Association for the Conservation of Energy (ACE) this could lead to very little action. Joanne Wade, director of ACE, said: “There is little explicit mention of energy efficiency in the Conservative Party manifesto, and absolutely no recognition of how its multiple benefits can contribute to other Government policy aims.”
Join us to hear 3 speakers from across the industry discuss possible effects of the Conservative Government on the construction industry, both on the ground and in terms of Policy moving forward.
