DECC – Warm Homes Discount consultation response (Published June 2016)

WHDDECC published their response to the consultation on the Warm Homes Discount on 29 June 2016.

The response states that ”there was general support for the Government’s proposals to make minimal changes to the scheme this year, keeping the eligibility for the Core and Broader Groups and the amount of the rebate the same, maintaining stability and continuity and recognising the relatively short timeframes available.”

There was also support for giving energy suppliers the option to achieve part of their “Industry Initiatives” spend through contributing to a central pot of funding. Further changes to the scheme will be introduced in 2017/18.
