This is Gemserv’s response to the Defra consultation on the ‘Cleaner domestic burning of solid fuels and wood’. We responded to this consultation using the online survey. The below response refers exclusively to Section 2 (Wood) and Section 7 (Implementation). We have answered the questions and expanded on recommendations where appropriate.
Gemserv is integral to the operation of many Government and industry led energy efficiency and renewable programmes, including the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), the Green Deal and the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL), which supports the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). We also administer the Master Registration Agreement (MRA), which underpins the electricity market, the Smart Energy Code (SEC), the Alternative Home Area Network (Alt HAN), and the Smart Metering Device Assurance (SMDA) scheme within the smart metering sector. Through these roles, we have seen the energy efficiency market evolve and change, based on different Government policies, public opinion and awareness, and industry confidence and competence.
