BEIS department announces independent energy market review

This month, the Government has announced the launch of an independent review into the UK energy market. The review will be comprehensive, covering the whole electricity supply chain from generation to supply.

The review will consider the future challenges to the energy industry, from regulatory change to technological innovation, and asses how these could result in lower energy prices for consumers.

Dieter Helm, a Professor of Economic Policy at Oxford University and energy industry analyst, has been appointed to the lead the review.

The findings of the review will be published in a report at the end of October, and stemmed from an industrial strategy green paper by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
