GMB, the energy union, says the UK needs a proper energy plan to avoid the market free-for-all that could see prices by 30%.

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said:

“The UK’s energy market is wild west free-for-all with prices likely to rocket, companies going bust and  - ultimately - customers taking the flak.

“We need a proper energy and industrial plan that utilises domestic resources, protects people’s pockets and the planet.

“The answer is to invest in realistic technology, keep our supply chains on shore and commit in new nuclear - without which there can be no net zero.”
