Commenting on the Energy Bill in today’s Queen’s Speech Jess Ralston, Senior Analyst at the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU), said:
“The big risk with the Energy Bill is that government gets distracted with technologies like hydrogen and nuclear that might play a role but not for years to come.
“Steps that give immediate help to families struggling with rising energy bills, like insulation, seem to be falling by the wayside with Treasury blocking extra support and leaving the government open to criticism from voters who are feeling the pinch now.
“British renewables and home insulation are the only logical ways to both shield households from surging gas costs and isolate Putin."
