Which? response to Ofgem’s ban on complex tariffs which come into force today

 Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director said:

‘Ofgem’s energy market reforms are a welcome step in the right direction but they just do not go far enough to boost competition and help consumers find the cheapest deals at a time when millions are struggling with the cost of living.

‘This is why the Government should intervene with more radical measures including simpler pricing, greater transparency and scrutiny of the cost of energy policies, and the separation of supply from generation businesses. More must be done to keep prices in check and give consumers confidence that the price they pay for their energy is fair.’

Notes to Editors

Which?’s Consumer Insight Tracker research shows 82% of people are worried about their energy prices. This is their top concern, followed by fuel prices and food prices.
