To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how much energy suppliers would be required to spend each year in order to meet their obligations under the carbon reduction element of the Energy Company Obligation if no household chooses to take out a Green Deal package.

The final Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation impact assessment:

http://www.decc.gov.uk/assets/decc/11/consultation/green-deal/5533-final-stage-impact-assessment-for-the-green-deal-a.pdf models a range of scenarios for the costs of delivering the Energy Company Obligation. One of these scenarios specifically considers the impact of low customer demand for Green Deal packages. However, we estimate that delivery of the final Energy Company Obligation targets should cost suppliers no more than £1.3 billion on average a year and, unlike previous energy efficiency schemes, we have the legislative powers to gather much better real time data on the actual costs of delivery.
