The acceleration of heat pump development and new targets for hydrogen production have been pledged as part of the government’s new Energy Security Strategy.

Announced on Thursday, the Energy Security Strategy does not include any new policies on saving energy through insulating bills, nor new plans to help homeowners navigate soaring energy price rises.
