Comment on the Energy Security Bill

Responding to the Government’s Energy Security Bill, Jack Richardson, Climate Spokesman for the Conservative Environment Network, commented:

“Fossil fuels are not secure, affordable, or sustainable. Thanks to new technology and cheap renewables, we can transition away from them and get our bills under control. This legislation will upgrade our energy system and position the UK as a first mover in new globally significant industries. The pace and ambition of energy market reform must be accelerated in response to the cost of living and energy security crises.

“I’m pleased to see the Bill include measures to improve home insulation rates such as reducing the threshold for energy suppliers to take part in the ECO scheme. Energy efficiency is the crucial but missing ingredient to the government’s energy security strategy. We need the Treasury to put in place new incentives to help people finance home upgrades.”
