Government schemes such as the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Program (CESP) will form part of the Bill and consequently require energy suppliers to promote energy efficiency measures for consumers.

The measures are expected to give a greater flip to UK’s efforts to contain climate change.

Speaking at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Doha Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey remarked that while the proposed Energy Bill is expected to be introduced in the country by the end of November 2012 a greater global effort was required.

"Many developed and developing countries have already come forward with pledges under the UN framework to reduce their emissions by 2020. I want to encourage more to do so at Doha and beyond.

"The EU has led the way in calling for more ambition and in enshrining emissions reductions in law.

"I want to encourage it to move to a more ambitious 2020 emissions reduction target of 30%," said Davey.
