star this property answer text <p>Our ambition is to increase total R&amp;D investment to 2.4% of GDP by 2027, and 3% in the long term. Successive UK Governments have supported the principle that funding for basic research should be awarded through competitive processes on the basis of excellence and likely impact - as assessed through peer review.</p><p>UK Research and Innovation, a partner organisation of BEIS, primarily engages with industry through Innovate UK. The table below shows the amount committed by Innovate UK to projects involving optoelectronics in each of the last 5 years. These figures focus on funds to industry and, as such, exclude funding towards research-focused partners such as academics or charities.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Commitment Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Grant Offered (Commitment)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>£3,530,324</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>£1,944,112</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>£3,676,222</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/18</p></td><td><p>£5,225,330</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018/19</p></td><td><p>£822,952</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em>Note: as this is committed funding the 2018/19 figures do not include where an offer letter has been sent but no agreement has yet been reached. As such this will not reflect the full amount of funding committed in that year.</em></p><p> </p><p>Funding for research into optoelectronics is also provided by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.</p>

Ofgem is responsible for ensuring compliance with these requirements.</p><p>In 2016, Ofgem introduced new requirements that companies take all reasonable steps to identify customers who may benefit from PSR services and introduced a broad “Vulnerability Principle” in 2017, which clarifies that suppliers need to make an extra effort to identify and respond to the needs of consumers in vulnerable situations, which can help identify those who could benefit from PSR services.</p><p>The number of consumers on PSRs has risen from 1.7 million electricity and 1.4 million gas consumers in 2010, to nearly 6 million electricity and 4.8 million gas consumers in 2017.
