The Daily Telegraph cites findings from Policy Exchange's new report The Customer is Always Right that the biggest component of DECC's overspend on renewables subsidies is the subsidy for rooftop solar panels.
The Financial Times cites findings from Policy Exchange's The Customer is Always Right report which show that the government's overspend on the Levy Control Framework could add a further £20 a year on to household energy bills.
Analysis in The Guardian on energy bills and renewable energy subsidies extensively references Policy Exchange's new report The Customer is Always Right. The report shows that government has breached its spending cap on renewable energy subsidies, and calls for restrictions on subsidies to small photovoltaic systems - the largest contributor to the overspend.
James Frayne, Policy Exchange's Director of Policy & Strategy, writes arguing that Labour has lost the support of England's C1 and C2 voters, and must win them back if it is to have a hope of forming a government again.
Richard Howard, Policy Exchange's Head of Environment & Energy, responds to dissenting views on his new report The Customer is Always Right, which criticised governmental overspend on renewable energy subsidies and argued that government must focus on keeping bills down.
Two of the leading research organisations in the country today announced a partnership to produce a major new study into policies to improve air quality in London. Policy Exchange, the UK’s leading think tank, which has a track record of producing ideas that have impacted the policy debate, will join forces with King’s College London’s Environmental Research Group, one of the global experts in air quality science.
Policy Exchange argues that policymakers should prioritise “affordability, affordability, affordability” by beefing up consumer oversight of policy decisions. The average household energy bill has risen by £120 over the past five years purely due to ill thought through energy and climate policies which fail to put affordability at the heart of policymaking.
