unstar this property answer text <p>Burdens on smaller regulators were raised in the <em>Regulatory Futures Review</em> with regard to the implementation of the 2016 Enterprise Act’s provisions for independent scrutiny of the impact on business of regulatory changes. The Public Accounts Committee also recommended an approach to assessing impacts (Recommendation 6 of its 2016-17 report on Better Regulation – HC 487). In light of both reports ministers modified the Better Regulation System to make it more proportionate for both departments and regulators as reflected in the <em>Interim Guidance on the Better Regulation</em> <em>Framework</em> published by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 22 February 2018.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Achieving clean growth, while ensuring an affordable energy supply for businesses is at the heart of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, and the Government is taking steps to encourage high street retailers to reduce their carbon footprint. Minimum energy efficiency standards and energy labelling regulations for energy-using products are making lighting and appliances that they buy more energy efficient. The Energy Technology List encourages high street retailers to invest in the most energy efficient plant and machinery, as part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) for energy-saving technologies. Through energy efficiency programmes such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and Climate Change Agreements (CCAs), high street retailers are encouraged to make improvements to the way in which they use energy.</p><p> </p><p>We also require certain companies to measure and report their energy use and carbon emissions. This helps them to lower their energy costs, gain a better understanding of exposure to the risks of climate change, and demonstrate leadership to strengthen their green credentials in the marketplace. We have recently consulted on proposals to introduce a new and streamlined energy and carbon reporting framework.</p><p> </p><p>Government provides support to businesses, public sector and non-profit organisations in meeting the cost of installing renewable heat technologies through the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The scheme is designed to bridge the gap between the cost of fossil fuel heat sources and renewable and low carbon heat alternatives through financial support for owners of participating installations.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also committed to ensuring that small businesses in the country are offered a smart meter by the end 2020. Smart metering will give high street retailers access to the information they need to understand and manage their energy use better, save money on bills and reduce carbon emissions.</p><p> </p><p>There is also a role for behaviour change in emissions reduction. The government has published guidance to help businesses, especially SMEs, identify simple measures like not having doors propped open for convenience, which can help save up to 30% of heating costs.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have considered many international models but market conditions are different to the situation in GB. The Government has introduced a Bill that requires the industry regulator to cap poor value standard variable and default tariffs. This follows the Competition and Markets Authority investigation which found that domestic customers of the Big 6 energy companies pay on average £1.4bn a year more than they would in a truly competitive market. The Bill requires Ofgem to set the cap so as to protect consumers and have regard to the need to, among other things, enable competition between suppliers and ensure suppliers can finance their licenced activities.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government’s policy is clear on onshore wind farming: that we do not believe that new large scale onshore wind power is right for England but in other areas where there is public support it can be developed. Further deployment in this sector is expected, supported by existing Government schemes such as the Contracts for Difference (CfD), and Feed In Tariff (FIT) which will aid delivery of cheap, clean and reliable energy in line with the aims of the Industrial Strategy.</p><p>The Government has also secured state aid approval to classify remote island wind as a separate technology in Group 2 of the CFD scheme. The Clean Growth Strategy announced that we would provide up to £557m in total of annual funding for future CFD auctions. We have consulted on how the Government could support the development of onshore wind projects on remote islands, where they benefit local communities, and are currently considering the responses we have received.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Offshore wind is a success story for the UK. Government support has enabled investment, cost reduction and building a supply chain across different parts of the UK including Scotland. We will look to build on this success as part of our Industrial Strategy.</p><p> </p><p>Floating offshore wind is still at a demonstration phase. However, the technology is eligible to compete in the Contracts for Difference auctions which incentivise developers and supply chains to innovate and reduce costs. If the technology can demonstrate that it can compete with other forms of generation, the manufacturing sector may be able to benefit from UK deployment and potential exports.</p> more like this
