ABSTRACT
An interview with John Mogg, chairman of the British Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem), is presented. According to Mogg, qualitative issues like fuel poverty and climate change inevitably will be dificult. He points out that the government is not wrong to pursue a sustainable development programme because it is not economically viable for some customers. Mogg admits that those accusing the energy retailers of collaboration were adept at generating headlines that raised public concern.
