Energy Prices and Bills Report 2017

This is the CCC’s fourth independent assessment of the impact of UK carbon budgets on household and business energy bills.

The report finds that:

  • In 2016, low carbon-policies made up around 9% of an annual ‘dual fuel’ household energy bill of around £1,160.
  • Improvements in energy efficiency have saved the typical UK household around £290 per year since 2008.
  • Some energy-intensive manufacturing sectors face higher costs from climate policies but those deemed most ‘at risk’ are largely compensated for those costs.
  • There is a range of opportunities for UK business arising from the transition to a low-carbon economy.
