Improvements required in UK energy strategy

13 November 2017

Following last week's alert issued by the Association of Decentralised Energy (ADE), further concern has been voiced over the UK's energy strategy.

Hilson Moran associate sustainability consultant Marie-Louise Schembri has added her voice to the calls for improvements.

Speaking exclusively to PFM, Ms Schembri said: "Despite the efforts made by the recent TCR to maintain fair charging and to avoid influencing customer behaviour, we believe there needs to be more of a balance struck between network operators’, customers’ interests, and decarbonisation targets.

"An example of this imbalance is that customers will continue to pay for legacy costs and inefficiencies.

"These need to be reduced in the first instance because without this, we run the risk of not reaching carbon targets and consumers and businesses not fully benefiting from current falling energy costs.

"We’re advocates of the transition to a low carbon economy and, by making such efforts to demonstrate renewable energy advantages, we’re slowly moving in the right direction.”

Concerns voiced by the ADE over business and industrial energy use charges can be accessed here.
