Dieter Helm gives evidence on the costs of net zero

The Industry and Regulators Committee will speak to Sir Dieter Helm, who was commissioned by the Government to carry out the Cost of Energy Review in 2017. The meeting will cover how the energy policy landscape has changed since the review was published, the regulation of the net zero transition and how it should be funded.
