A recent report called for radical policies to incentivise home owners - such as fining people who sell cold, draughty homes, or introducing a variable stamp duty to reward those who have insulated their homes and punish those who have not.

Energy campaigners fear the plan will not contain the measures necessary to meet the government's own laws on cutting carbon.
