CCP member comments on Ofgem and Government plans to help consumers get better energy deals

Prof Catherine Waddams of CCP comments on Ofgem and Government plans to help consumers get better energy deals:

“Ofgem’s new proposals encourage consumers to find a better deal, and do not discourage companies from offering lower prices, unlike their earlier non discrimination clauses and the Prime Minister’s current proposals. Government and regulator must decide whether they are encouraging competition or protecting energy consumers through regulation. If they try to do both, we will all likely get the worst, not the best, of both worlds.”
