When the cap no longer fits: a discussion paper on protecting energy consumers when the price cap ends 1.57 MB

This discussion paper considers whether there will be a need for any continuing protections for energy consumers after the current price cap ends - and if so, what form those protections should take.

Following on from its publication, on 10 March 2020 Citizens Advice held a roundtable to consider whether there was a need to develop a new policy, or policies, to succeed the energy price cap.

Participating in the event were a range of different stakeholders, including energy suppliers, policymakers within both regulators and government, charities, a trade association and an academic. The energy suppliers included both former incumbents and challenger brands, and both supporters and opponents of the price cap. The event was independently chaired, and held under the Chatham House Rule.

To help those stakeholders who were not able to attend to understand the main points that were raised, we have published a note of the meeting 31.9 KB and the introductory remarks 58.9 KB that were made by Citizens Advice.
