The complete report follows the earlier publication today of a short overview of its investigation, a summary of the report itself and a range of other materials for consumers and businesses.

The report is the most comprehensive investigation into the energy market since privatisation. It sets out in detail the investigation group’s findings and outlines more than 30 measures that will be brought in as a result.

These will drive down costs by increasing competition between suppliers and helping more customers switch to better deals, while protecting those less able to benefit from competition. They will also bring in technical and regulatory changes to modernise the market and ensure it works in consumers’ interests.
