Below is a list of policy documents and consultations that CEE is considering making responses to (listed in date order of responses required). Draft responses will be added to this page for member comments. If you would like to input into any of our responses, please email us.

The future for small-scale low carbon generation: part B

In January 2019, BEIS published a consultation on the future for small-scale low-carbon generation (part A), which proposed the introduction of a mandatory supplier-led route to market: the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). Under the SEG, government would legislate to require suppliers to remunerate small-scale low-carbon generators for the electricity they export to the grid. You can read CEE's response to the consultation here.

Part B of the consultation proposes the modifications to electricity supply licence conditions which would be required to introduce a SEG. It is primarily of interest to organisations who are (or may in future be) bound by the electricity supply licence conditions.

Deadline for responses: 11:45pm, 27 May 2019

Social Investment Tax Relief: call for evidence

The aim of this call for evidence is to enable the government to understand how the Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) has been used since its introduction in 2014, including levels of take up and what impact it has had on social enterprises’ access to finance. The SITR has a sunset clause which will bring the scheme to an end in April 2021, and this call for evidence will help inform a decision about the future of the relief.

Deadline for responses: 11:59pm, 17 July 2019. CEE is working with its members and other stakeholders to respond to this call.
