Community Energy Saving Programme
The UK government?s Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP). The broad policy proposals for the design of the programme included:
- placing an obligation on energy suppliers and electricity generators to meet a CO2 reduction target by providing energy efficiency measures to domestic consumers
- requiring that this obligation be met by providing these measures to households in areas with high levels of low incomes
- to offer these measures as a package to homes, to deliver a ?whole house approach? so that homes can receive all the major energy efficiency measures they need, which could also include district heating schemes; and
- specifying that only certain measures are eligible to count towards the CO2 targets, focusing on those measures which can make a substantial difference to a household emissions and fuel bills.
