IEA Chief Operating Officer and Energy Analyst Andy Mayer has been quoted in The Daily Express discussing the long-term outlook for energy bills.

Andy said:

“Whether the price cap increases to £3,000 or stays at £2,500, bills in the summer shouldn’t reach it.

“Wholesale gas prices, which ­influence both heat and power, are falling.

“But, they are still two to three times what they were and won’t fall to the old level, yet.

“Other costs, bailing out failed energy companies, welfare schemes for poorer households, grid upgrades, taxes and older subsidy schemes ­contribute to higher bills. So expect home prices from £2,000 to £2,300 [for a typical household], while remembering the actual bill depends on your use.”
