Detail of outcome

This document sets out the Government’s response to the Warm Home Discount (WHD) 2016/17 consultation that closed on 6th May 2016. It gives a summary of the responses that were received, which were broadly supportive and in-line with the proposals made within the consultation. The government response also outlines the changes which will be introduced to the scheme for 2016/17. The majority of these changes are relatively small; for the industry initiatives element of the scheme, they include providing an option for suppliers to achieve part of their Industry Initiatives spending through contributions to centrally, pre-approved schemes. Government are also proposing to place a cap on suppliers’ total spending on debt write-off, to be no more than 50% of their Industry Initiative allowable spend in the next scheme year. Other administrative changes are outlined in more detail in the document.

The accompanying Impact Assessment sets out the impact of the changes for 2016-18 and provides an overview of the costs accompanying the scheme.
