NEA NI response to Department for the Economy’s Energy Strategy for Northern Ireland — Consultation on Policy Options
Post on 30th Jun 2021
For many households, the cost of energy has relatively little impact on how much energy is used in the home. However, for households living on a low income, energy usage makes up a significant portion of the household expenditure. Northern Ireland continues to have amongst the lowest levels of household income across the UK and the highest weekly household expenditure on energy of any UK region. Taken in conjunction with challenging economic conditions as well as the ongoing global pandemic, many families continue to face challenges with meeting their energy costs.

Post on 22nd Mar 2021
Urgent action is needed to improve health outcomes and support the most vulnerable people who are at most risk of needless death and morbidity. Public Health England (PHE) recently warned there is a clear overlap between cold homes and Covid-19 and it is more important than ever that the most vulnerable members of society can afford to live in a warm, safe home.

Post on 08th Feb 2021

NEA response to BEIS’s Consultation on the Warm Home Discount Scheme 2021/22
Post on 11th Nov 2020
NEA agrees with the proposals to extend the scheme, as is, for a further year. This process must be expedited. We broadly agree with many of the proposed changes to Industry Initiatives, but warn that increases to fuel voucher provision will result in reductions in valuable provision of energy advice, income maximisation and energy efficiency measures, which NEA believes is an undesirable outcome.

NEA response to BEIS “Consultation on a Green Gas Levy”
Post on 02nd Nov 2020
NEA’s Response to the BEIS Consultation on a Green Gas Levy. NEA disagrees with the introduction of a new levy on gas bills to pay for green gas projects, and believes that this should be paid for out of general taxation. If the proposals were to be taken ahead for a new levy, NEA believes that this should be constructed in distributionally fair way instead of the proposed flat rate for all users.
