Mike Foster, CEO of the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA), has commented on the extension of the Energy Price Guarantee, for an additional three months until June.
Mike said: “We warmly welcome the decision to extend the Energy Price Guarantee, helping to protect consumers against a 20% increase from April. It’s good that the chancellor has listened to us in the energy industry as well as consumer champions who have all backed this move.
“What we now need is the chancellor to listen to industry again, by supporting the move towards a hydrogen economy, in the first instance by giving the green light to blending this zero carbon gas with natural gas into our networks. This helps us all decarbonise without spending huge sums ripping out our gas boilers.”
