Energy Act 2008

Additional powers of the Authority

215.Under paragraph 16(1), the Authority may require certain persons to provide it with information and assistance in connection with the Authority’s functions in relation to the property scheme power. Sub-paragraph (2) allows the Authority to seek information in respect of any provision of a property scheme (or proposed scheme) from any other person, as may be necessary. For instance, if information or assistance provided by a person under sub-paragraph (1) alerts the Authority to relevant information held by someone else (e.g. a parent company), the Authority would be able to approach that person for a copy of that document. The Authority is also able to engage consultants to advise it for the purposes of making a property scheme under this Schedule (paragraph 17).
