To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many households in (a) England, (b) each local authority area and (c) each parliamentary constituency received assistance under the community energy saving programme in (i) 2009-10, (ii) 2010-11 and (iii) since April 2011.

The companies obligated under the community energy saving programme (September 2009 to December 2012) are not required to report on the number of households benefiting or where their schemes are located until after the programme ends in December 2012.

However, the companies provide estimates to Ofgem of their progress towards meeting their obligations, which Ofgem publishes annually. The first of these estimates to June 2011 indicated that 9,937 properties had been treated in England (this information is available only at a regional level):

Region Properties treated (to June 2011)
North East 1,611
North West 3,129
Yorkshire and Humberside 1,524
West Midlands 1,912
East Midlands 533
East of England 193
London 715
South East 41
South West 179
Total 9,937

As CESP schemes take time to set up and complete there were no completed schemes in the period September 2009 to June 2010 and all these properties were treated in the period July 2010 to June 2011.

The next estimate of CESP progress, including the period up to the end of 2011, will be published in May 2012.
