Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Energy: Prices (2 Jul 2012)

Charles Hendry: DECC does not hold the information requested. Ofgem is responsible for the regulation of gas and electricity supply, including supply to the non-domestic sector. If a non-domestic customer does not notify their existing supplier that they wish to agree a new contract or switch to another supplier within the time limit set out in the terms of the contract, the supplier will roll over the...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Energy: Prices (2 Jul 2012)

Charles Hendry: Ofgem is responsible for the regulation of gas and electricity supply, including supply to the non-domestic sector. Existing rules, which protect micro-business customers, require suppliers to provide clear and transparent contract terms and conditions, including sending the customer a reminder at least 30 calendar days before their existing contract is due to end and details of renewal...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy (2 Jul 2012)

Charles Hendry: The UK's renewable energy targets are for generation and consumption; it does not have any renewable energy capacity targets. The contribution of biomass co-firing to renewable generation/consumption targets is measured by summing the number of renewables obligation certificates (ROCs) issued (by Ofgem) to generators for co-firing, and converting to a generation equivalent (using the number...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Meters (28 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: DECC published two updated smart meter impact assessments in April 2012. The impact assessments consider the potential for higher costs in early roll-out stages and reflect these through the addition of cost allowances. The impact assessments also take account of the potential benefits from earlier deployments, such as providing consumers the early opportunity to receive smart meters and save...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Meters (28 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: DECC published two updated smart meter impact assessments (IAs) in April 2012. The IAs estimate that, on average, the cost of a dual fuel installation will be £69 per premise. This estimate accounts for those instances where a number of visits will be required before a successful installation is achieved.

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Energy: Prices (28 Jun 2012)

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity Generation (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: It is Government policy that new nuclear should be able to contribute as much as possible to the UK's need for new low carbon generation capacity. It is not the Government's intention to set targets or limits on any new electricity generating infrastructure to be consented in accordance with the Energy National Policy Statements. ‘The Carbon Plan: Delivering our Low Carbon Future’...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Meters (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: The Government consulted on area and non-area based approaches to the roll-out of smart meters in the “Smart Metering Implementation Programme—Prospectus” (July 2010). The “Prospectus—Response” (March 2011) set out the Government's decision not to impose constraints on suppliers in relation to planning, co-ordination or customer prioritisation, judging that this flexibility will...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Meters (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: Energy suppliers will be required to take all reasonable steps to roll-out smart meters to all their domestic and smaller non-domestic customers by the end of 2019. For the purposes of economic modelling, the Government assumes that suppliers reach 97% of their customer by the end of 2019. This is neither a target, nor guidance, for suppliers. Ultimately, it will be for Ofgem to judge if a...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Meters (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: The installation of smart-type meters enables some consumers to access many of the benefits of smart metering earlier than otherwise, and contributes to learning during the foundation stage of the Smart Meter programme, delivering benefits for the programme more broadly. Meters need to be replaced when they come to the end of their lives, irrespective of the timetable for smart meter...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Electricity: Wales (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: Neither I nor other DECC Ministers have held discussions with the First Minister of Wales on this project. It would be for National Grid to make the need case for any such connection when submitting proposals for regulatory and planning approval.

Charles Hendry: At the 2012 G20 Summit at Los Cabos Leaders welcomed a progress report on fossil fuel subsidies and reaffirmed their commitment to reform of these in line with previous G20 commitments. Finance Ministers were asked to report on progress and options for a voluntary peer review process to the Russian-hosted 2013 G20 Summit.

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy: Feed-in Tariffs (27 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: No estimate has been made of a maximum acceptable strike price for a feed-in tariff with contract for difference for new nuclear power generation. Any strike price that is agreed for new nuclear power generation will be based on delivering a fair deal which is affordable and provides clear value for money (taking into consideration the costs of comparable technologies, on a like-for-like...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Sequestration: Yorkshire and Humber (26 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: I have made no estimate of the total cost to the public purse involved in the proposed Yorkshire and Humber Carbon Capture, Transportation and Storage Project. The project may feature in proposals we expect to receive as part of the CCS Commercialisation programme announced on 3 April 2012. If so, the level of public financial support required for these projects will be assessed as part of...

Charles Hendry: I have made no estimate of the security and stability of the pipeline involved in the proposed Yorkshire and Humber Carbon Capture, Transportation and Storage Project. The project may feature in proposals we expect to receive as part of the CCS Commercialisation programme announced on 3 April 2012. If so, the technical feasibility of these projects will be assessed as part of that process.

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Sequestration: Yorkshire and Humber (26 Jun 2012)

The Health and...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Coryton Refinery (26 Jun 2012)

Charles Hendry: It is disappointing that a buyer has not yet been found for the Coryton refinery. This reflects a general overcapacity in the European refining sector. An assessment of the economic impact on the area has been commissioned by a task force set up by Thurrock council. On the supply chain, the south-east is served by other supply points that enable suppliers to develop and implement existing...
