Tower Hamlets has the most energy efficient homes

The London area of Tower Hamlets has the highest amount of energy-efficient homes in England, a study by Enviro Homes Renewables has revealed.

The data studied showed that in 2022, 76.11% of homes in the area had an EPC band ‘C’ or above, which is the highest in England by over 0.10%.

Coming in second is the City of London area with 62.74% homes above an EPC C; while Southwark is third, at 62.07%.

Outside London the most energy efficient areas is Salford, where 62.04% of homes are above C.

Ross Jones, director of Enviro Homes Renewables, said: “While there are many ways you can save money on energy for your home, having a low energy efficiency rating can make this very difficult from the start, and costs will add up, and with the current cost of living this can be a serious problem.

“However, if you don’t live in one of these areas, you can improve your EPC rating by installing insulation, changing your lighting, replacing your boiler, and more.”
