Detail of outcome

We believe that there is significant potential for greater efficiency in the use of electricity in the UK - some of which will be realised by existing policy. The consultation on electricity demand reduction sought views on what more might be done to support the efficient use of electricity. It looked at the opportunities in all sectors and identified a number of key barriers that are preventing this potential from being realised.

Our response to the consultation provides a summary of the views expressed by respondents and outlines the Government’s proposed approach to supporting electricity demand reduction.
