Powering Britain: One Nation Labour’s plans to reset the energy market

Caroline Flint

Ed Miliband and Caroline Flint have set out Labour’s plan for the biggest reform of Britain’s electricity and gas market since the privatisation of the 1980s.

The Energy Green Paper, published on the 29th November, sets out the steps a One Nation Labour government will take while we reset the market during the 20 month price freeze to ensure energy is affordable and available for the long term by:

  • Improving competition and transparency in both the wholesale and retail market
  • Establishing a new Energy Security Board to plan and deliver the capacity Britain needs
  • Replacing Ofgem with a new regulator with real teeth to prevent overcharging
