The minister for Climate Change, Greg Barker, will today launch a consultation on the Government's strategy to boost energy self-sufficiency in communities. The public debate about microgeneration will look at ways to ensure the quality of generating technology and its installation, how to improve available products, and how to develop the microgeneration supply chain while providing more accessible advice.

The consultation follows last week's news that the Government is to overturn a ban on councils selling "green" electricity back to the national grid by the end of the year.

Mr Barker said he wanted people to be able to save money on their fuel bills while generating income and cutting carbon.
