The Government is committed to minimising energy costs for businesses, to ensure the economy remains strong and competitive. In addition to existing Energy Intensive Industry (EII) schemes, the Energy Bill Relief Scheme is now supporting industry with the cost of energy. This will be in place until 31 March 2023. The Government is considering providing support beyond the existing relief schemes and will publish its response to the EII Exemption Scheme consultation in due course.
