The main measures confirmed in Ed Davey's Energy Statement are as follows:
- Government will provide £300m in both 2014 and 2015 - £600m in all - for a new rebate to all domestic electricity customers worth £12 each year
- It will consult on reforming the Energy Companies Obligation to make it cheaper, knocking £30-35 off average bill next year
- The Affordable Warmth and Carbon Saving Community Obligation - schemes which help low-income and vulnerable households - will be maintained at current levels and extended until March 2017
- The electricity distribution network operators will make voluntary improvements worth £5 from the average energy bill
He says these measures combined will result in saving worth £50 on the average energy bill.
The coalition has unveiled measures it says will knock £50 off the average energy bill, but some of that cost will be absorbed by taxpayers.
The Government has laid out its ideas on how to cut energy bills this winter - but the plan has been put together in haste.
