Energy Price Cap Unsuitable for UK

The Northern Energy Taskforce has claimed that the government’s proposed energy price cap is not suitable in the long term and does nothing to drive forward the plans set out in the clean growth strategy.

It insists the best way to reduce energy costs is to give local councils and communities more responsibility and taking a share of power away from the ‘Big Six’.

This would give councils more funding and powers to work and make changes on a local level with small businesses and consumer-led solar generation.

The Taskforce says that these plans would bring £15 billion into the northern economy and create an estimated 100,000 jobs in the process.

Under the plans, the North of England will be given the ability to control its share of the carbon budget to bring vital ‘green opportunities’.

Chair of the Northern Energy Taskforce, Sir John Harman, stated: “If the government is going to make further progress on the Paris Agreement, it requires a step-change in its approach.”

“If it is serious about spreading growth across the country while meeting decarbonisation goals, the government must take this issue seriously and give the North of England real powers to kickstart a local energy revolution.”
