The energy price cap was originally intended as a temporary measure with annual reviews and new legislation required to extend it beyond 2023. As this deadline approaches this lecture will consider whether this remains the most appropriate solution for the problem it set out to solve or whether an alternative, such as auto-switching or some form of opt-in or op-out switching, may be more suitable. It will assess past and future approaches, consider how the energy price cap has evolved since its inception and what new risks to the customer and industry might be posed by alternative approaches.
