Commenting on Ofgem’s retail market review proposals, Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey said:
“I welcome the proposals Ofgem has set out today - these are the sort of measures I have been urging for some time, they represent a big step forwards in reforming our energy market to help millions of households get a better deal on their energy bills. I look forward to seeing the full proposals from Ofgem in due course.
“I want an energy market where the suppliers have to work hard to win your business, and then work hard to keep it. Making bills simpler and easier, for instance by actually putting the best tariff on the bill, is a really important part of that.”
