Domestic Alternative Fuel Payment Scheme Alternative Funding Privacy Notice

The legal bases for the Secretary of State for the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) for Processing the relevant Personal Data, including Special Category Data, include (i) the performance of a task carried out in the public interest under Article 6(1)(e) of UK GDPR, and (ii) the substantial public interest under Article 9(2)(g) of UK GDPR. 

The Alternative Fuel Payment scheme provides a £200 payment to domestic energy consumers in Great Britain that use alternative fuels such as heating oil, LPG or biomass as their primary source of heating. Most eligible households will receive this payment automatically via their electricity supplier. A small proportion of households will need to apply for the payment, for example because they do not have a relationship with an electricity supplier. These households will do so through a GOV.UK portal which will include an overview of eligibility and what applicants need to do to apply for support. Once domestic energy consumers have applied to receive support and their application has gone through internal verification, eligible applicants' details will be shared with local authorities (for England, Scotland and Wales).
