Chancellor must look beyond handouts to ease pain of rising energy bills

Times Business

Head of Net Zero Ed Birkett and John Penrose MP jointly wrote for Times Business on how to address rising energy bills in the long term. They write:

“Any long-term solution must include redesigning the market so we keep our net-zero promises, but more cheaply and reliably than today, no matter what’s happening in the international gas market.

“We must modernise the grid so it can cope with more electric cars and small renewable generators, and can discount electricity for local consumers if there’s a surplus from Cornish solar farms in the middle of the day, or spare power from Scottish wind farms overnight. This could cut billions off bills every year.”
