Energy UK responds to the BEIS consultation on the Smart Export Guarantee

Responding to the BEIS consultation on the Smart Export Guarantee, an Energy UK spokesperson said: 

“Small-scale electricity generation has an important role to play in the transition to a low carbon economy and given the current hiatus, it’s important that we have a replacement for the FIT scheme in place quickly. We therefore support the implementation of the Smart Export Guarantee and believe this is best achieved through a market-based scheme and a simple licence condition rather by than imposing too many costs and burdens on suppliers, where the Government setting the price could ultimately lead to those with renewable generation being subsidised by other customers.”
