ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs related to the energy industries in Great Britain. A report by Eaga says British climate change policies are adding significant costs to consumers' energy bills, which look set to rise substantially by 2020. The study by the Centre for Competition Policy at the University of East Anglia examined the factors that drive switching in the energy market. One report says community level distributed heat and power generation could cut nearly two-thirds of British household carbon dioxide emissions.
