Incentivize or make private landlords make their properties energy efficient.
Lanslords should be incentivized and required to have high energy ratings on the properties that they rent out. From experience of renting privately, many rented homes are drafty and expensive to heat and there is not much you can do about it if it is not your own home.
Why the contribution is important
This would reduce gas and electricity use and wastage. It would have an additional benefit of reducing energy bills for private renters who are generally on a lower income and allowing them to live in warmer properties.
