The Department does not collect energy bill data for communal heating consumers. We are introducing regulation from Spring 2025 to appoint Ofgem as the heat network regulator and will provide Ofgem powers to monitor communal heat prices. The Government has already invested over £55 million on Heat Network support through the Energy Bills Discount Scheme, which is estimated to have reduced the average bill per supported customer by £1200 over the last year.
