Commenting on the publication of Dieter Helm’s independent energy review Terry Scuoler, Chief Executive of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation said:
“This is a welcome report and contribution to future energy policy. Dieter Helm has confirmed what the international evidence has long shown, namely that costs of UK energy are too high and need to be urgently addressed to provide relief to households and industrial consumers.
“EEF notes the positive recommendation from Dieter Helm that UK electricity prices must come down. Given the complexity of the issue and the wide range of companies likely to be impacted by future economic policy and his recommendations, we will now take time to reflect on the conclusions and consult with companies before formally responding.”
Terry Scuoler was a member of the advisory panel to the review
