The Plan includes measures to increase the participation of industrial and commercial consumers in demand side response (DSR), which focuses on improving access to energy markets and actively supporting National Grid’s changes to ancillary services. The Plan also details policies to enable domestic consumers to participate in DSR, including measures to increase the availability of smart tariffs and on standards for smart appliances, alongside provisions for appropriate consumer protection.</p><p> </p> more like this

The responses to this consultation showed that the regulations were working as intended. The results of this consultation will feed into the wider review of requirements for Carbon Monoxide alarms that was announced in April 2018. This review will consider if the regulations should be extended to include all fuel types as well as all tenures</p><p>In England the regulations require that private landlords install a carbon monoxide alarm in any room having a solid fuel heating appliance. Private landlords are also required to ensure that the alarms are in working order on the first day of the tenancy. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in a penalty of up to £5,000</p><p>The Scottish Carbon Monoxide alarm regulations are a devolved power and it would be for the devolved administration in Scotland to provide details of any assessments they have made of their regulations.</p>
