Asked by: Rachael Maskell (Labour (Co-op) - York Central)
Friday 18th March 2022

Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if he will make it his policy to include the proposals in the Local Electricity Bill in any forthcoming energy bill.

Answered by Greg Hands - Minister of State (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)

The government agrees with the broad aims of the Local Electricity Bill, but does not support it as the means to enable local energy supply. There are already mechanisms in the market to allow local supply. The current Ofgem regulatory regime allows for a company to supply a specific geographic area, and small-scale generators can also apply for a licence exemption in some cases to reduce the regulatory burdens of operating at a community level.
