Statement on independent review into the cost of energy led by Professor Dieter Helm CBE

Our energy system is changing dramatically and SSE welcomes any move from government which could make energy smarter, fairer, and more competitive for customers. The cost of energy is critical to customers and the UK’s industrial strategy and a review to better understand those costs is welcomed. SSE will engage with the review team to make the case for cost-effective decarbonisation and make a positive case for key policies such as the Carbon Price Floor which is a crucial to meeting the UK’s energy ambitions and attract low-carbon investment whilst maintaining security of supply.
