DECC consultation on Renewable Electricity Financial Incentives

ACE have submitted a written response to the Department of Energy and Climate Change consultation on Renewable Electricity Financial Incentives 2009.

In summary, ACE believes that no home should receive a feed-in-tariff (FIT) if it has a cavity wall or loft that is uninsulated. Such a policy would improve the return-on-investment of a FIT and help Government meet its target of having all lofts and cavities insulated by 2015.

ACE also has concerns that those in fuel poverty will not be able to raise funds to benefit from a FIT though they will be paying for the policy as part of their energy bills. Government should act as an ESCo to the fuel poor, supplying the renewable technology and claiming the FIT themselves.
