Energy price cap to be extended

The Government will extend the energy price cap beyond 2023 in an effort to help British households cope with surging costs.

The measure, announced in the Queen’s Speech, forms part of a new Energy Security Bill aimed at setting the path to net zero emissions while keeping energy costs affordable.

Prince Charles, who delivered the speech in place of the Queen, said: “Protecting consumers from unfair pricing, the energy price cap is the best safety net for millions, preventing suppliers from overcharging consumers.”

The cap, introduced in 2019, was intended to be temporary and only stay in place until 2023 at the latest. The reforms mean it could become a more permanent part of the market.

It comes after British Gas owner Centrica said its profits will hit the top end of its previous forecasts. There have been growing calls for a windfall tax on energy firms, which have cashed in on surging oil and gas prices.
