Millions of households are cutting back on essential energy with many going without energy at all. The situation is likely to get worse this winter since consumers will no longer receive the energy price support provided by the government in 2022/23.

We held a discussion on how energy prices could be reformed to make energy more affordable. 

What type of tariffs could help households avoid financial stress? How might we achieve change? We heard from researchers and advocates about potential reforms and securing support for change.

Four panelists will gave their perspectives followed by a Q&A session with participants.
