star this property answer text <p>DECC has introduced the domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme to support renewable heating systems. The RHI aims to compensate householders for the additional costs they face when installing a renewable heating system compared to an oil heating system. The domestic RHI is targeted at, but not limited to, homes off the gas grid. Incentivising oil and LPG boilers in this context would undermine the design of the RHI, and potentially cause confusion for consumers. For more vulnerable customers, support is available through the Energy Company Obligation, with proposals to strengthen this support for off-grid properties. For these reasons, DECC considers it appropriate to exclude these heating measures from the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) scheme.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government fully recognises that Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) and oil, like other fossil fuels, will continue to play a part in the UK's energy mix, while the way we heat our homes changes. DECC has introduced the domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme to support renewable heating systems. The domestic RHI is targeted predominately at off gas-grid households, by compensating for the additional costs faced when replacing an oil boiler with a renewable heating system. New incentives for oil and LPG boilers would undermine the balance struck in the design of the RHI, and potentially cause confusion for consumers.</p><p>The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) will continue to support oil and LPG condensing boilers for low income and vulnerable households. By February this year around 320,000 households were helped under ECO. We are making changes to ECO to provide a greater incentive for targeting measures at off-gas grid households.</p><p> </p> more like this

The average waiting time for environmental permits for onshore oil and gas is 8 to 9 weeks. We will introduce standard rules environmental permits later this year cutting permitting times for low risk activities to 2-4 weeks.</p><p>The Department of Communities and Local Government published planning guidance for onshore oil &amp; gas projects last July, which makes clear that planning authorities when assessing applications should assume that the environmental and health and safety regulatory regimes operate effectively rather than duplicating effort.</p><p>We are also consulting on proposals designed to simplify current procedures for obtaining access to underground land. This consultation is open until the 15th August and, subject to the outcome of the consultation, could lead to legislative proposals.</p><p> </p>
