The Department has a strong package of policies delivering assistance to those in need, including: the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), the Warm Home Discount and the Big Energy Saving Network. The Government also provides financial support through Winter Fuel Payments and Cold Weather Payments. The All-Party Parliamentary Group and Ministerial Roundtable on heating oil and LPG supply will continue working to determine whether further action is required.

The Department does not have plans to include oil and LPG boilers as measures available under the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.
