Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: I thoroughly understand my colleague’s frustration—he is a fantastic champion for his constituents. That sort of large-scale solar development on a brownfield site on an airfield is exactly the sort of large-scale solar that we want to see and support, rather than one on high-grade agricultural land. It sounds like an exemplar project.

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: We have an excellent relationship with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. We take all cases of potential mis-selling or poor practice in the green deal market extremely seriously, even though such cases are relatively infrequent. The Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body has particular responsibility for policing the market, but if the hon. Lady has specific examples of...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: We have taken it on board that, to date, and particularly under the last Government, people who live in Park homes have had a very poor deal. We are doing two things. First, we are making the energy company obligation more applicable to people who live in Park homes, accepting that there are challenges with insulating such properties. Secondly, we are exploring whether it is possible to pay...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: We take all measures to improve energy efficiency extremely seriously. I would be very happy to hear more about the example that the hon. Lady has mentioned. If she will write to me or meet me, we will see what we can do to help.

Provisional data for 2013 is that total UK electricity generation was 356,649 Gigawatt hours (GWh).

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Energy Prices (18 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: This has been a welcome opportunity to debate yet again one of the biggest questions in British politics today, and there have been lively contributions from both sides of the Chamber. Energy bills are at the forefront of everybody’s minds, and the coalition is acutely aware of the impact that a combined heating and electricity bill can have on a family budget. That is why, unlike the 13...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Energy Prices (18 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: I make it a policy always to agree with my Prime Minister. I can tell the right hon. Lady what we said in 2009: we called for a competition inquiry. I can also tell her what the current Leader of the Opposition did: he declined it. He ducked it—he was frit. When he was in power, standing at this Dispatch Box, he sang the tune of the big six and ducked a competition inquiry. The British...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Energy Prices (18 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: May I just point out, for the record, that under this coalition fuel poverty has fallen in real terms in each of the past three years? That did not happen during the last Parliament, when it went up year on year. The figure the hon. Gentleman refers to is a projection. There was a projected rise last year, but we actually delivered a cut. There is much more to do on fuel poverty, but using...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Wind Power: Seas and Oceans (18 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: The Government set out the allocation framework for contracts for difference (CfDs) on 13 May 2014, which has the potential to improve value for money, encourage new entry and drive innovation. Indicative CfD budgets will be published in July. CfD allocation rounds will then determine which projects are successful and receive CfD contracts and at what level of support. It is not possible to...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Boilers: Government Assistance (17 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: The Government fully recognise that LPG and oil, like other fossil fuels, will continue to play a part in the UK's energy mix, but we must begin to revolutionise the way we heat our homes to make the transition to a low carbon economy. To this end, DECC has introduced the domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme to support renewable heating systems. The domestic RHI is targeted...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Fuel Oil: Rural Areas (17 Jun 2014)

Gregory Barker: The Government want to encourage all householders to invest in energy efficiency, whether rural or urban. The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is designed to incentivise householders in England and Wales to install a wide range of energy efficiency measures, such as insulation and better glazing. Many rural properties have solid walls, making them well placed to take maximum advantage of the...
