This answer is a correction from the original answer.

Achieving clean growth has to be a shared endeavour between Government, local authorities, business, civil society and the British people. The Government has various campaigns and sources of support available to encourage people make changes in their lifestyle.

For example, the simple energy advice service provides advice on the best ways to make your home more energy efficient, and discounts on the purchase of low emission vehicles through the Plug-in Grant. There is also the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, under which households can receive cash payments for installing an eligible renewable heating technology, and the Smart Energy Guarantee, where households receive payment for generating their own electricity.

Original answer

It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. I will correspond directly with the noble Lord.
