Our response to the Warm Homes Discount: better targeted support from 2022 consultation

The Warm Homes Discount, along with support provided through ECO, is the most significant annual UK Government support measure for low income and fuel poor households. This consultation proposed to expand and reform the Warm Homes Discount scheme in England and Wales until 2026, in line with the commitments announced in the UK Government’s Energy White Paper in 2020. The objective of the reforms is to improve the fuel poverty targeting rate of the scheme and ensure more fuel poor households can receive rebates on their energy bills automatically.
