The Energy Bill Relief Scheme has been designed to ensure that all eligible businesses receive an appropriate level of support, based on a ‘government supported price’ for the wholesale cost of energy. This is underpinned by scheme regulations and rules set out in law, with associated guidance published on gov.uk. BEIS continues to work with energy suppliers, delivery partners and the energy regulators in Great Britain and Northern Ireland to ensure all recipients are receiving the correct level of support. Robust enforcement action can be taken if energy suppliers are not passing on the EBRS discount correctly.
