These are:

  • A new £6 billion energy efficiency scheme designed to cut bills for thousands more families until at least 2028

  • Extension of the Warm Home Discount to ensuring over 2 million low income and ‘vulnerable’ customers receive £140 off their energy bills next winter

  • A drive to increase world-leading British innovation in green technologies as part of the government’s Clean Growth Strategy

As part of these proposals the government has produced two consultations:

Changes to the Warm Home Discount

Both consultations close 11:45pm on 29 April 2018.
