Question to the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero:
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, what recent steps the Government has taken to maximise the (a) take up and (b) speed of the roll out of the ECO+ scheme.
The Great British Insulation Scheme is expected to be established by summer 2023. Obligated energy suppliers are able to deliver measures before this, from 30 March 2023, following the publication of the Government response to last year’s consultation on scheme design. Yearly targets will be set, including minimum levels of delivery, whilst allowing energy suppliers to progress more rapidly and have measures counted towards their overall scheme obligation.
The Government is also working with energy suppliers to launch a new service in the summer to allow householders to check eligibility and refer themselves to the scheme.
