Background

Background

  • Housing Executive established in 1971 - Single Regional Strategic Housing Authority

  • 26 Local Councils do not have housing remit

  • Reduced unfitness from 20% to 4.9%

  • Sold over 100,000 houses to tenants

  • Manage current stock of 110,000 dwellings

  • Invest £45m p.a. in private sector grants

  • HECA Authority since 1996


Ni energy market

NI Energy Market

  • One Housing/HECA Authority

  • One HECA Advisory Panel

  • Two EEACs

  • 4 Govt Departments have an impact;

    - DSD (Housing Legislation & Policy)

    - DETI (Energy Policy)

    - DoE (Air Quality/Pollution)


Home energy conservation act

Home Energy Conservation Act

  • Operational on 1 April 1996

  • 34% Energy Efficiency Improvement target - fuel switching counts towards NI target

  • No Statutory Enforcement Powers

  • No Additional Finance Available

  • Finance works to own stock and partner others to encourage and, in some cases, fund private sector works

  • Progress measured in reduced energy use impacts upon fuel poverty/air quality


Domestic energy use

DOMESTIC ENERGY USE

  • Energy consumption in 1996 was 79,600T/J

  • Average SAP in N.I. in 1996 was 41

  • Solid fuel was main domestic fuel with oil growing steadily - no natural gas

  • By 2001 there was a 13% reduction in energy consumption over 1996 figure

  • Average SAP in N.I. in 2001 was 52
