This means the cap will come into force by the end of the year as we promised.</p><p> </p><p>The cap will protect 11 million households on standard variable tariffs. As a result, the average household on a standard variable tariff will save £76 and customers on the most expensive tariffs will save over £130. Overall the cap will save consumers in the UK an estimated £1 billion per year.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is a statutory requirement to review the Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme every three years. As part of the latest review, the Government will be shortly publishing a consultation document on the retention of both the Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme and the Common Tariff Obligation, reflecting their importance in helping to protect consumers in the North of Scotland from the high costs of electricity distribution there. The consultation will also set out detailed proposals for spreading the costs of a cross-subsidy for Shetland across Great Britain. This would have the effect of reducing electricity costs for all consumers across the North of Scotland from 2020 onwards.</p> more like this

Floating and demonstration offshore wind projects in Scotland have a grace period until 30 September 2018 to accredit under the scheme. Developers have known about this grace period since it was announced by the Scottish Government in 2013.

Innovative offshore wind projects are eligible to compete in the next CFD auction, planned for spring 2019. The scheme incentivises developers and the supply chain to innovate and continuously bear down on costs.

star this property answer text <p>It is an eligibility requirement for the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme, which supports the installation of domestic renewable heating systems, that both the product and installation are covered by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), which is the nationally recognised quality assurance scheme for microgeneration renewable heating technologies. MCS standards require installations to a defined quality, using products that have met testing standards. For the installation to qualify for RHI, the installer must be a member of MCS, use a product that is certified by MCS and the product must be on the RHI Product Eligibility List: <a href="https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/domestic-renewable-heat-incentive-product-eligibility-list-pel" target="_blank">https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/domestic-renewable-heat-incentive-product-eligibility-list-pel</a></p><p>MCS and its certification bodies have a consumer protection process in place in case there is a problem with an installation. Installers also have to be members of a consumer code, either the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) or Home Insulation and Energy Systems Contractors Scheme (HIES). These are approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI). The standards that installers must meet when contracting with consumers are set out by these codes. They also cover advertising and promotion, behaviour of sales staff, proposals, estimates and quotes, terms of business, cancellation rights, deposits and prepayments, guarantees, maintenance and service agreements and service and repair. Both RECC and HIES have accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures. The ADR processes for RECC and HIES can be found at: <a href="https://www.recc.org.uk/consumers/how-to-complain" target="_blank">https://www.recc.org.uk/consumers/how-to-complain</a> and <a href="https://www.hiesscheme.org.uk/how-to-complain/" target="_blank">https://www.hiesscheme.org.uk/how-to-complain/</a></p><p>New central heating systems can be installed under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) with any system having to meet relevant building regulations, the publicly available specification (PAS) or other relevant requirements to be eligible. Further guidance can be found on the Ofgem website at: <a href="https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/energy-company-obligation-2017-18-eco2t-guidance-delivery" target="_blank">https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/energy-company-obligation-2017-18-eco2t-guidance-delivery</a></p><p>Government is supporting the implementation of the Each Home Counts review of quality and standards in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sector. This will involve the introduction of a new quality mark standard and Government has said that it intends to apply that to ECO.</p>
