I have written an article for the New Statesman about the case for overhauling our energy pricing system, through the introduction of a National Energy Guarantee.

Read the article here.

Our energy pricing system is broken, and we need to rethink it quickly.

That’s why I am proposing an amendment to the bill in its final reading on Tuesday 5 September, to introduce a national energy guarantee – a safety net that would allow everyone to meet their essential energy needs at low cost. The guarantee would take the form of a multi-tiered pricing structure, where energy-use up to a certain threshold is free or very low cost – and is cross-subsidised by higher users paying a premium rate above that threshold.
