Following the introduction of green policies by the UK government to help tackle the effects of climate change, some energy companies have claimed that these policies are to blame for the recent growth in some business’s energy bills.
However, contrary to the claims of these energy companies, a recent report from the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) has revealed that these green policies are not responsible for the recent spike in energy costs.
So, in our latest blog post, the energy service team here at TED take a more detailed look at the UKERC report, and supply you with details on how our team can help you if you are not pleased with your recent energy bills.
UK environmental policy costs are among the lowest in Europe
In a response to recent claims from a selection of energy companies, researchers from UKERC studied energy bills in Britain, Australia, France, Germany and Sweden to discover if UK businesses are forking out more than others to help with the fight against climate change.
At the conclusion of the investigation, UKERC confirmed that British businesses actually have some of the lowest green policy costs in Europe.
Commenting on the findings of the report, co-director of UKERC Rob Gross said:
“Markedly differing contexts between countries – and even within countries – means that caution should be exercised when comparing prices.
“But it is a total myth that UK consumers pay more for green policies than consumers in other countries.”
