Over the summer, the government sought initial views from a range of businesses, academics and other bodies. A consultation published today now sets out proposals to reform business energy effic.

The review has three key aims: boosting business productivity, supporting growth, and decarbonising the economy.

Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury Damian Hinds said: "This government wants to create a sustainable tax system for businesses that is fair and simple and supports growth. We recognise business concerns around the complexity of business energy efficiency policy and we want to create a simpler and more stable environment."

The consultation is open until 9 November and the government welcomes views from businesses, organisations and the public.
