The Utility Regulator (UR) is today publishing a call for evidence in relation to our review of the Northern Ireland Sustainable Energy Programme (NISEP) and Energy Efficiency Provision project. We introduced the NISEP, previously Energy Efficiency Levy (EEL), in order to implement energy efficiency schemes for domestic and non-domestic properties. In our Forward Work Programme we committed to review the NISEP during 2018/2019.
The call for evidence is to seek feedback directly from stakeholders as part of this review process. This will help inform our view as to whether or not there is a need for NISEP or a replacement energy efficiency programme beyond 2019/2020. The call for evidence will be followed in due course with a consultation outlining our findings and proposals for going forward.
This call for evidence includes a separate questionnaire for respondents to complete.
Please send your response by 31 October 2018 to:
