Energy suppliers work closely with Government and stakeholders to offer consumers opportunities to be more energy efficient.
Energy suppliers have an obligation to deliver energy efficient measures to households via the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP). Examples of this work are through better insulated homes, and learning about and saving energy. Energy UK's members are committed to meeting their energy efficiency targets, and are open to discussions on how these targets can be met.
Energy UK works closely with stakeholders, like the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly, Ofgem, Consumer Focus, the Energy Saving Trust and the National Insulation Association to make sure that both CERT and CESP work to the advantage of consumers.
Energy UK is also working with Government to make sure that the new Energy Company Obligation (ECO) complements the Green Deal, which is the Government's flagship energy efficiency policy.
In our recent response to the Green Deal and ECO consultation we outline a number of considerations for the Government when creating these new schemes. Read our response to the Green Deal and ECO consultation (PDF 900KB).
