Energy UK response to the opposition's Energy Green Paper
Following the release of the opposition's Energy Green Paper, Powering Britain, Energy UK said:
“Powering Britain means increased competition, attracting international investment, rebuilding trust and a better deal for customers. Energy UK and its members are up for change but it has to honest and real.
“Reform is already underway. Currently competition is increasing, companies have simplified tariffs, people are switching and more suppliers are coming in. No other industry is facing the investment challenge of the energy sector and we will work with all parties to keep the lights on and keep us secure.
“What is needed is a well-functioning energy market that gives consumers fair value, works in their interest and gives investors the confidence they need. An open and honest debate and long term policy commitments are essential.”
