A panel discussion with leading experts, as part of the Cambridge Festival 2022

Dan Alchin, Deputy Director, Retail at Energy UK
James Doig, Head of Decarbonisation, Ofgem

With dramatically rising wholesale energy prices since the autumn, the strain on suppliers has led to several dozen small energy firms going bankrupt. The UK Government’s energy ‘price cap’ temporarily postponed the immediate impacts of those price rises on consumers but they are set to be passed through on 1 April. If the envisioned price increases do go ahead they will be the single largest increase ever in household energy bills.

What control mechanisms are available to soften the rise, what options are available to the government (such as removal of green levies or industry-wide loans) and what are the trade-offs involved? What should happen to the price cap? What could some of the regulatory developments mean over the short, medium or long-term for the Treasury and to UK energy and climate policy more generally? Join the panel to explore some of these questions and to let you pose your own.
