Upcoming changes to energy legislation have received support from a sizeable number of UK businesses, according to a survey from energy supplier npower. As part of its Comprehensive Spending Review, the Government wants to replace the current Renewables Obligation and Feed-in-Tariff arrangements with an exemption scheme.

"The proposed exemption would represent good news for those businesses and sectors which are eligible," said David Reed, head of npower Business Solutions. "Making regulatory processes more transparent and more straightforward would reduce the burden on businesses and provide them with greater clarity about their finances."

A consultation process on the Government's plans is due to start shortly, and half of the respondents in npower's survey said they would like to take part.
