Heat Trust's stakeholder Committee provides independent oversight of the Scheme.

The Committee's duties are set out in the Company Bye-Laws (you can find a copy of these here). They include recommending that the Board approves changes to the Scheme, through Modification Proposals, where the changes would better facilitate achievement of the Scheme Objectives. The Committee's members are drawn from relevant industry sectors, including heat suppliers and consumer and trade bodies. Representatives from Ofgem, DESNZ and Scottish Government also attend.

All Committee Members are required to act independently of their company in the best interests of the Scheme. Meetings are run by an independent Chair, with Heat Trust providing the Secretariat.
