4. Objectives for 2020/21
The ECC will adopt the following objectives:
- Strengthen the consumer voice within energy market decision making, including through; industry, the regulator, UK Government and SEAB.
- Support grassroots organisations to ensure the consumer voice is heard from an array of previously underserved groups. These groups will include those representing various social and geographical communities in addition to common interest groups such as housing associations. Increasing capacity to engage with high level decision making amongst grassroots organisations.
- Direct consumer advocacy work using a portion of energy levy funding in Financial year 2020/21. We do not anticipate additional funding being required.
This approach will help move towards a fairer energy system for all consumers.
