A Direction-based approach has been used successfully to deliver the Energy Bill Support Scheme via energy suppliers in Great Britain. As such, the Government is confident it can be used to deliver further support schemes like the Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP) scheme.

Clause 22 of The Energy Prices Bill 2022 gives power to the Secretary of State to give directions to a person who holds an energy licence. It will allow the Secretary of State to set out the necessary requirements for relevant energy licence holders to deliver energy support schemes including AFP.
