Detail of outcome

The Government’s initial assessment of the Directive indicated that Great Britain was compliant with many of the requirements under Articles 10 and 11, but that in order to be able to demonstrate full compliance action was needed in a limited number of areas related to the accuracy and frequency of billing and access to consumption data. Having considered the consultation responses, the Government has decided to proceed with its proposed approach to implementation of the billing elements of the Energy Efficiency Directive and will bring forward amendments to supplier licence conditions.
