Energy prices and bills – impacts of meeting carbon budgets 2014

In its third assessment of the impact of carbon budgets on energy bills, the Committee on Climate Change finds that out of a typical energy bill costing £1140 in 2013, householders paid around £55 per year to support energy efficiency schemes and £45 per year to support low-carbon electricity. A further £55 would be added to average annual bills from 2013 to 2020, mainly to support investment in low-carbon electricity and a …

Energy prices and bills - impacts of meeting carbon budgets

This report assesses the impact of carbon budgets on energy bills confirms that annual household energy bills could increase by £100 in 2020 to support development of low-carbon technologies. It follows on from the December 2011 report on Household Energy Bills. The report considers the impact of meeting carbon budgets on household, commercial and industrial sector energy bills, and concludes that it is economically sensible to insure against future high …

Household energy bills - impacts of meeting carbon budgets

There is currently much debate on rising household energy bills, and the extent to which this is or will be due to costs of financing low-carbon investments. This note sets out our analysis of energy bill impacts from meeting carbon budgets to date and over the next decade. It includes assessments of price impacts from wholesale gas prices, financing low-carbon investments and energy efficiency measures, together with scope for reductions …
