The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero team has issued a letter for non-domestic customers that are eligible for the higher level of support under the Energy Bill Discount Scheme (known as Energy and Trade Intensive Industries (ETII), and including museums, libraries and archives, historical sites and buildings, and zoos).

Eligible organisations will have 90 days from the scheme introduction date of 26 April to apply for the higher support.

Apply for the higher support

Applicants will need to provide information about their organisation or business including:

  • contact details
  • registered name and address
  • company registration number (if you have one)
  • up to 4 ETII eligible SIC codes
  • whether you pay bills directly to an energy supplier and details of any intermediaries involved (such as a landlord)
  • the names of gas and/or electricity suppliers
  • the gas or electricity meter point numbers (MPRN or MPAN) associated with the property, found on your bills from your energy suppliers.
  • the name of your organisation as it appears on your bill from your energy supplier(s)
  • a declaration letter signed by a named director or equivalent of your organisation or business (a template will be provided)
  • a template has also been provided to record your meter point numbers. This can also be used when applying [if you have more than 10 meter point numbers per supplier].

In addition to this, you may be asked to provide financial evidence to determine your eligibility. For more information visit the government website page.

If you have any questions about the application process, or how you might be eligible, you can contact the EBDS customer support team by phone or by email.
