Government Consultations

Each year, Elmhurst responds to a number of consultations released by different government departments across the UK. Consultations are released to provoke discussion and thought within the industry which in turn can help government departments to develop effective strategy and policies.

Elmhurst Energy Responses

Elmhurst actively encourages members to respond to all relevant consultations, and always considers their views and opinions when developing our own response. Our Manifesto for Change highlights what we believe are the highest priority actions for government and industry to reduce fuel poverty, energy consumption and our impact on climate change. This document forms the basis for a lot of our responses, to ensure that our members remain at the heart of all future energy policy. 

All Open Consultations

The consultation/s named below are currently open for members of the public to respond to. Any draft responses from Elmhurst will be published as a link on this page prior to the consultation deadline. If you would also like to contribute to Elmhurst's own consultation response please feel free to get in touch.
