The Government’s Energy Bill is currently being scrutinised in Committee. The draft Bill was heavily criticised for containing no provisions for reducing electricity demand. Since then we have welcomed the publication of a DECC consultation on policy options to encourage permanent reductions in electricity use. However, we are also pushing for the Energy Bill to be amended to require the Government to establish a scheme to incentivise electricity demand reduction within a year of the passing of the Act.
