The consumer organisation Which? reports that average savings to homes switching energy supplier is £217. The RE:NEW evaluation summary report stated that energy bill savings of only £28.81 where achieved by 97% of the households that went through the RE:NEW programme. Did RE:NEW provide supplier-switching advice to homes that went through the programme? If not, why not? If advice was supplied, how many homes switched their supplier?

My RE:NEW programme did provide homes with energy switching advice. It isn't possible to determine how many of these households subsequently switched provider. Programmes supported by RE:NEW, such as London Council's Big London Energy Switch, provide this service to an excellent standard and have systems in place to facilitate and record impacts of switching.
