The Welsh government has committed to ambitious targets to achieve net zero emissions from
Welsh homes by 2050, requiring significant investment in actions to decarbonise existing homes and
the electricity and heat supply to them. The Welsh Government is keen to ensure that such
investment also contributes towards wider goals to tackle fuel poverty and generate other benefits
towards a prosperous, green and equal Wales.
This report presents evidence on the co-benefits from decarbonising homes relevant to the Wales Wellbeing Act and Prosperity for All goals as identified in a rapid evidence assessment of 61 relevant
good quality studies.
