Consultation opened on 01 December 1999. Consultation closed 24 January 2000.


This paper is concerned with three interlocking themes - energy efficiency, electricity prices and fuel poverty. Its starting point is an assertion that the minimum amount of electricity which is central to a modern quality of life should be subject to different treatment to he electricity which is not required to provide an energy service and is therefore in effect consumed unnecessarily.
