The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published a summary of responses received from its consultation on proposals for a green gas levy.
The Government intends to proceed with the launch of the green gas levy (GGL). Decisions in the response include:
•the scope of the levy;
•frequency of levy payments and the collection of meter point data;
•impacts on bill payers;
•a comprehensive cost control framework;
•a robust compliance and enforcement package, including mutualisation, financial penalties, interest rates and public reporting; and
•the rationale for launching with a per meter point levy design and the intention to transition to a volumetric levy design as soon as feasibly possible, as well as considerations for this, are also outlined.
