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.
This consultation document seeks views on the government’s approach to the implementation of Articles 10 and 11 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, as they apply to the billing of gas and electricity.
Articles 10 and 11 set out requirements on regular billing and billing based on actual consumption, the provision of information to energy service providers, the availability of electronic billing information and bills and the provision of information to customers with the bill.
The consultation will run for six weeks.
