Responding to the Government’s review into Green Tariffs and Call for Evidence on Third Party Intermediaries, Energy UK’s chief executive, Emma Pinchbeck said:
“Consumer confidence in new services and products is an essential part of our transition to a smart, flexible and low-carbon energy system. So we would welcome more transparency over green tariffs which could allow consumers to make more informed choices.
“The market has changed rapidly in recent years and with renewables and low carbon sources now supplying well over half of our power, it is a sensible time to review the current regulations. We also welcome the Government’s look into services like price comparison websites and auto-switching which play a big role in the choices made by millions of energy customers.
“It is crucial consumer protection keeps pace with the growth of innovative new services in this fast evolving market and so we look forward to working with the Government to help achieve this.”
