As heat rises in the debate on fuel bills versus living standards, we launched a special report on 'Energy, Politics and the Consumer' with an event at the British Academy on Thursday 3rd April. The evening covered a range of subjects, including: the reputation of energy companies in the UK and how to enhance it; parallels with the banking crash and other sectors; the relationship of consumer attitudes to the wider economic climate; and Coalition versus Labour proposals to manage the ‘Trilemma’ of affordability, energy security and green policies.
