In this article, the author discusses the necessity of changing Great Britain's electricity market. He mentions that effort, however, could lead to higher energy bills and, consequently, have a regressive effect on households in fuel poverty. He cites the speech made by Great Britain's Energy and Climate Change secretary about changing the electricity market and move away from the use of fossil fuel.
