Energy market intervention needs to end

Mark Littlewood is quoted in City AM

A report by the IEA has shown that government policies intended to reduce energy costs inadvertently push up consumers' energy bills, as state intervention has “continuously failed to provide consumers with the best outcomes”.

Mark Littlewood, Director-General of the IEA, said that “Politicians need to realise that more controls are not the answer to energy companies not behaving in a manner they see fit. Proper privatisation and a return of market forces are the best ways to ensure both security of supply and the lowest possible prices for consumers.”
