star this property answer text <p>Our central estimate of energy savings to domestic consumers as a result of smart metering is 2.8% for electricity every year in comparison to what consumption would have been in that year without smart meters (prepayment and credit) and 2% for gas (credit) and 0.5% for gas (prepayment). The energy savings assumptions are conservative in comparison to international evidence.</p><p>In March 2015 DECC published research on the effects of the early rollout of smart meters – The Early Learning Project:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/smart-metering-early-learning-project-and-small-scale-behaviour-trials" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/smart-metering-early-learning-project-and-small-scale-behaviour-trials</a>.</p><p>The Early Learning Projects findings around levels of energy consumption reduction are that DECC’s steady-state projections for the main roll-out fall within the confidence intervals of the energy consumption reductions observed in the research for both gas and electricity. However evidence suggests that larger energy savings are achievable; it is realistic to expect durable energy savings of 3 per cent provided engagement is effective, and larger savings are feasible in the future.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department has procedures in place to comply with Cabinet Office Efficiency controls ensuring that all requests for consultancy or temporary staff are subject to approval by formal panels. These panels provide the ultimate approval based upon business case submissions.</p><p> </p><p>We do not recognise the term ‘resource board’, however, the process for approving professional services spend is via a professional services business case (PSBC) that gets approved by the Finance Approvals Panel (FAP). Temporary staff are approved via one of two routes:</p><p> </p><p>- Specialist Contractors = PSBC to secretariat then FAP</p><p> </p><p>- Admin and Clerical = complete a ‘Request to Recruit’ Form (which is a proportionate type of business case) which is then submitted via a secretariat.</p><p> </p><p>With regard to the question on rates, the Department does hold this information on its electronic procurement system from which the proportion of consultants on daily rates could be calculated, however, this would require a review of each individual contract to check the payment method, and would result in disproportionate cost. We are not therefore able to provide this information.</p>
