This chart shows how much suppliers spent fulfilling their obligations in scheme year 7 (2017/18) of the Warm Home Discount (WHD), a government energy scheme which aims to help people who are in fuel poverty or are at risk of it. 

Energy suppliers with over 250,000 domestic customers (referred to as ‘large suppliers’) are obligated to participate in each support element of the scheme, categorised by a ‘core group’, ‘broader group’ and ‘industry initiatives’. They are also allocated targets based on their share of the domestic GB energy market.
