Control framework for DECC levy-funded spending
12 April 2011
A number of the Department of Energy & Climate Change's energy and climate change policies are funded through levy-funded spending, which feed through to energy bills. These fall outside of the standard spending framework. The Government has announced a new control framework for these policies to maintain the tax and spending within agreed limits. This will deliver the Government's energy objectives while capping the impact on energy bills and ensuring that these policies are affordable over the long-term. The Government remains committed to maintaining support levels for those existing investments where it has said it would do so and not to making retrospective changes. The following link is guidance on how this control framework will operate.
The guidance is available in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF). If you do not have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer you can download the software free of charge from the Adobe website.
