On Thursday 8 September, my right hon. Friend, the Prime Minister announced measures to tackle current issues in the UK energy market, including the introduction of an Energy Price Guarantee to limit the price suppliers can charge customers for units of gas and electricity.

To better understand the energy cost pressures colleges are facing and the potential impact of this, the department sent out a short survey for colleges to complete. The department is analysing the information returned with a view to determine next steps.

We will use the information from this survey alongside the recent announcement regarding the government Energy Bill Relief Scheme to support colleges with the energy cost pressures.
