The energy price cap finally came into effect on 1 January 2019, with Ofgem setting the cap at £1,137 until the next review in April. This cap could see consumers save around £76 on average annually. However there has been widespread criticism of the policy, as there are worries it may decrease competition and that any savings made will be lost once a rise is implemented, leading to poorer consumers paying even more than before.
Even though there has been a price drop in self-generating renewable energies such as heat pumps and solar panels, there are less incentives for households to embrace these technologies as the export tariff is set to end in April 2019, meaning that anyone who adds solar panels after this date will not be paid for excess electricity given back to the grid.
Join us on 30 April to discuss the latest issues facing the retail energy market and put your questions to our panel of expert speakers.
Topics explored include:
- The debate on the price cap
- Recent supplier failures and lessons to be learnt
- Energy equity – how can more people become prosumers (generate and trade electricity)
- Managing data securely
- The potential to switch to trading energy as a service rather than KWh/m3 units and how this would impact consumer perceptions and behaviour
- 10:30 - Registration, tea and coffee
- 11:00 - Debate commences, followed by approximately 30 minutes of Q&A
- 13:00 - Event concludes with lunch
